Today we've got another film adapted from a Stephen King story. So, let's dive right in.
John Cusack plays Mike Enslin, who likes to go around debunking the supernatural (a 'myth buster,' if you will). His latest endeavor is the supposedly haunted room # 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel in NYC. Samuel L. Jackson plays the hotel's manager, who fails to convince Enslin not to stay a night in the room.
To say that 1408 is creepy would be an understatement. The night that Mike Enslin spends in that fairly plain hotel room is absolutely terrifying. Watching it one night at home with the lights out, I was riveted to the screen, even though I wanted to turn away.
Jackson's character put it best: "It's an evil fucking room."
