1408 (2007) (C)
"... ranks with The Shining as one of the best Stephen King Adaptations ever!" Pete Hammond, Maxim.
Based on a short story by suspense master Stephen King, 1408 is a gripping "roller-coaster of a head trip" (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly) that will have you on the edge of your seat. John Cusack delivers "a tour de force performance" (Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter) as a skeptical writer investigating paranormal events. When he insists on staying in the reportedly haunted room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel against the grave warnings of the hotel manager (Samuel L. Jackson), he discovers the room's deadly secret - an evil so powerful that no one has ever survived an hour within its walls. In the tradition of King's The Shining and Misery, 1408 is "a psychologically thrilling movie that leaves you gasping in the end" (Desiree Belmarez, Denver Post). --- (C) Dimension Films, 2007, USA.
