Directed by Mikael Håfström
The only demons in room 1408 are those within you. Renowned horror novelist Mike Enslin (Cusack) only believes what he can see with his own two eyes. After a string of bestsellers discrediting paranormal events in the most infamous haunted houses and graveyards around the world, he scoffs at the concept of an afterlife. Enslin’s phantom-free run of long and lonely nights is about to change forever when he checks into suite 1408 of the notorious Dolphin Hotel for his latest project, “Ten Nights in Haunted Hotel Rooms.” Defying the warnings of the hotel manager (Jackson), the author is the first person in years to stay in the reputedly haunted room. Another bestseller may be iminent, but like all Stephen King heroes, Enslin must go from skeptic to true believer – and ultimately survive the night.
A skeptical writer investigating paranormal events insists on staying in the reportedly haunted room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel against the grave warnings of the hotel manager.
Cast: John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson
Quite good little thriller. Not very scary, but always interesting.
The concept of this movie gave me nightmares before the book even made. The fact that you can not leave the place unless you kill yourself is terrifying
I don't see the big deal about this movie. Cusack gets trapped in a hotel room with cgi ghosts and some mild weird stuff happens. It was ok, but not mind blowing imo. Middling horror on bigger budget. Tries too hard.
This is the version that puts John Cusack with Sam Jackson, not Mary McCormack, at the end. I like the Mary McCormack ending better, but the film that comes before either ending is still great.
Very good movie
