Overview

A writer renowned for debunking infamous paranormal events is confronted by a force that he cannot explain upon checking into room 1408 of the notoriously haunted Dolphin Hotel. Mike Enslin John Cusack is an author who specializes in horror, but who only believes in what he can see with his eyes and touch with his hands. Having constructed an entire career on his ability to dispel superstitious "haunted house" rumors, Mike is convinced that the afterlife is a manmade construct designed to offer false comfort to the weak minded. Mike's latest project is a book entitled "Ten Nights in Haunted Hotel Rooms," and it seems that in room 1408 of the Dolphin Hotel, this skeptical scribe may finally find proof of the supernatural. Implored by the hotel manager Samuel L. Jackson not to enter room 1408, Mike defiantly procures the key and prepares to dispel yet another spectral sham. Now, as is the case with many of life's most profound epiphanies, the writer who thought he knew it all is caught entirely off guard at the precise moment he least expected it. Subsequently faced with undeniable proof of an afterlife, Mike may have a best-seller on his hands if he can simply survive until sunrise. Mary McCormack and Jasmine Jessica Anthony co-star in director Mikael Håfström's Derailed adaptation of an original short story by horror icon Stephen King.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Buchanan
A taut, compact ghost story that also manages to weave a satisfying tale of psychological descent, 1408 may not offer much new to Stephen King fans, but it does manage to quicken the pulse more than a few times during its terse 94-minute running time. While many longtime King devotees may regard 1408 as little more than an abbreviated cannibalization of themes already covered to potent effect in The Shining an accusation that may well be of merit if one is inclined to judge an artist on his earlier body of work, director Mikael Håfström and his screenwriting team deliver a solid little frightener that still proves malevolently unpredictable and comes off more like a feature-length Twilight Zone episode than a forgotten page out of the pop-horror specialist's formidable bibliography. Readers know that King's stories are frequently punctuated by tormented characters who stumble upon an inexplicable phenomenon that is initially beyond their comprehension but slowly overtakes every aspect of their existence -- and with his tragic past and hardened skepticism, supernatural debunker Mike Enslin John Cusack is the perfect King protagonist. Yet, despite the fact that Enslin is a character that virtually any King fan will instantly recognize, actor Cusack does well to inject the familiar King archetype with just enough identifiable human emotion to make him a believable person as well. Likewise, screenwriters Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, and Matt Greenberg fare decidedly well in their efforts to toy with the viewer by subverting various ghost-story standards and drawing on the kind of nightmare logic that is sure to shake anyone who has struggled to awaken from a quickly worsening nightmare -- a tense scene on the ledge of a tall building being a decidedly potent example of this. Released into theaters at a time when many high-minded critics were vehemently lamenting the proliferation of such sadistic horror films as Hostel and Saw, 1408 draws on such classics as The Haunting and The Innocents in order to deliver supernatural thrills that never get too graphic for the future generation of horror enthusiasts.

    1408 - GREAT

    Most capativating movie I have seen in a long time. I loved John Cusack, he did a great job. The movie started a little slow but within minutes I was on the edge of my seat and stayed there through the end. I loved it and recommended it to everyone I know. I recommend it to anyone wheter you are a fan of scary moveies are not. This is not a blood and guts movie it is a scary thriller.

    Good

    This movie was pretty good, it is about this paranormal writer names Mike Enslin decides to stay in a haunted hotel room. The room had been closed-off from the world because of it's bad luck with its guests dying, however despite the many warnings Enslin decides to press his luck and stay. In many ways this film is similar to the movie The Shining. I do prefer The Shining to this film, but nonetheless this movie is worth seeing, it is scary and it does have a good storyline.

    1408 sends you into a world of almost believable hotel craze. Nothing is what it should be when a ghost finder steps into the most haunted room in the world. Where he is faced with revisits from the dead & ledges that almost push him to his death. Although most of the time, you're like, "yeah, right..." by the end, it all comes together in one terrifying conclusion. Not to mention this movie is probably the jumpiest thing you'll see all year.
