Cusack does a superb job of holding the viewer's interest through what is essentially a one-man show.

A cynical writer who specialises in debunking ghostly guest houses checks into a hotel room with a reputation for a long history of mayhem and soon begins to question his assumptions and sanity. Dear Lord, it's yet ANOTHER Stephen King adaptation containing the usual hokey premise and telegraphed "twists" that lumber over the horizon directly on cue in a Twilight Zone inspired chiller by numbers. It actually starts rather well as John Cusack is as watchable as ever and the scene in which he verbally spars with Samuel L. Jackson is quite good fun and like the similar Identity, also starring Cusack, it's quite intriguing right up until the moment you realise it's just the usual half-hearted horror nonsense rather than the off beat thriller you were hoping for.

Sometimes less is more, and simplicity works for the betterment of the plot. No gore or monsters needed to scare people or to make an intellectual film. Mike Enslin (John Cusack) is an enthusiastic author who would like to discover the mystery of room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel. Hotel manager Gerald Olin (Samuel L.

It's premise is more on inner demons, persistence and moving on with the past. Though 1408 is not at par with an almost similar premise in The Shining, the movie is still entertaining because of the effective acting, realistic effects and wonderful story/themes.

You really get dragged into the movie. You feel the deep pressure, and the heavy breathings from a man standing behind you with a hammer in his hand, ready to swing it to your head and make it bounce like a basketball.
You can´t stop watching it, either. It keeps you sitting in front of the screen, it won´t let you go. You try, but you can´t escape the thrilling evil and excitement of the master of them all- Stephen …
