"Even if you leave this room, you can never leave this room!"
These words are very relevant to this horror/thriller ghost story based on the short story by Stephen King.
A skeptical writer Mike Enslin(John Cusack) investigates supposed paranormal activity within hotels and other generally creepy places. While writing his latest book he receives a post card about an evil room at the Dolphin Hotel in New York(room 1408). The manager Gerald Olin(Samuel L. Jackson) is reluctant to have Enslin stay in 1408 because of all the deaths that have occurred in that room. But Enslin is insistent on staying the night there and nothing Olin says will change his mind...then Enslin's nightmare begins...
Nothing the best Stephen King adaption but it's one hell of a fun ride. With it's building story to the obvious but unexpected jump scares it outshines previous gore fest films. I highly recommend this if you're a Stephen King fan or just a pure horror movie fan and remember...
"Don't Stay in Room 1408."
