This movie is awesome as it gets. One of my favourite movies! One of John Cusack's greatest acting! Aswell as the story is just creepy and mind boggling. Nothing I can say was bad about this movie. It is a must watch!

4.0 out of 5 stars 1408 awaits you! Jan. 15 2013
Format:DVD
Micheal Enslin is a paranormal writer who makes a living by staying at supposedly haunted places and writes books about them. The man is tempted in staying at 1408 of the Dolphin Hotel when he receives a letter one day, warning him not to and sees this as a golden opportunity to publish another book. Olin the hotel manager tries to convince Micheal Enslin from checking in 1408. It turns out nobody has lasted over an hour, as a large number of people have died in that forbidden room. The protagonist firmly insisted in staying. Olin finally gives in and hands him the key to the room. Crazy things begin happening to Micheal Enslin there as he makes futile attempts to escape from the sinister hotel room. With no way out, he risks killing himself like all the other victims who couldn't keep their sanity!

The Two-disc Collector's Edition contains the original theatrical release of 1408 and the Director's Cut that was rejected by test audiences because it had a more tragic and depressing ending to it.

If any of you enjoy psychological horror movies, give this one a watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Un excellent suspense ! Jan. 13 2008
Format:DVD
Je pourrais arrêter là tellement je trouve que mon entrée résume bien ce film, c'est légèrement long avant que long tombe dans le vif du sujet mais cela est utile je crois pour que nous puissions bien cerner le personnage... une fois cela fait (compter une bonne dizaine de minutes) l'histoire commence vraiment... on entre dans un monde ou le danger est présent mais est-ce nous qui le créons, est-ce notre imagination ou est-ce bel et bien la réalité... (les frissons me parcours le corps en ce moment...) j'avoue que cela fait un bail qu'un film ne m'a pas aussi bien tenu en haleine !

La force de ce film c'est que l'on voie ce qu'il voie et ce qu'il ne voie pas disons... l'on voie le visible de l'imaginaire... mais je dirais plus que l'on voie ce que l'on doit voir de ce que l'on ne devrait jamais voir... vous savez le côté sombre de la vie... celui qui nous entoure, qui fait que l'énergie circule d'un corps à un autre... ce genre de chose que l'on ne devrait pas regarder car cela est dangereux... (explication ésotérique)

Bref c'est le genre de film qui me fascine même si après j'en suis bon pour être retourné durant quelques heures... mais n'est-ce pas la le but ultime de ce genre de film ? Ensuite à savoir si ce genre de phénomène existe ou pas, je vous laisse seul juge... mais n'oubliez pas que dans la vie ce n'est pas parce que l'on a jamais vue quelque chose qu'il n'existe pas... (Moi je n'ai jamais vue un billet de 1000$ et pourtant je sais que cela existe...)

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good Oct. 23 2008
Format:Blu-ray
I realize that the bar of quality for Stephen King adaptations has been set pretty low over the last few years, but 1408 is a surprisingly good movie. This is not necessarily a good reflection on King himself, as his original short story on which the movie is 'based' accounts for probably less than 1/4 of the film. The rest is fleshed out by the screenwriters, and both they and the director do an admirable job maintaining an unsettling tone throughout. One might consider the source author and theme of the story and immediately think 1408 is a riff on or even a knock-off of King's The Shining, but it manages not to really raise the spectre of the previous work until the end. Probably the best compliment I could make is that 1408 holds its own against Kubrick's creepy masterpiece.

Both Cusack and Jackson comport themselves well; Cusack's performance at first might seem a little tired, but ultimately it comes off as more of a characterization than just phoning it in. His role is of a jaded author who is resigned to never getting a peek at what lies beyond, and Cusack realistically holds this tone of subdued grace. Jackson expertly walks a line between menace and concern as the hotel manager.

These characterizations hold a firm centre while the creepy machinations whirl about in 1408, and make for some enjoyable chills on a dark and windy night.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality Horror Film Hacked Up by US Distributor April 4 2008
Format:DVD
1408's theatrical cut is just below mediocre but the director's cut is a solid four stars out of five and one of the most effective horror films in the last five to ten years. So I went with three stars to balance things. It is amazing that such little changes can have such a dramatic effect on one viewer's perception. It's a shame that the Weinstein's decided to flub 1408 and give it a sappy and cliché Hollywood ending rather than the dark and gutsy horror ending that Mikael Håfström decided to create. This is the version that you folks in Europe and South American got to see in the theaters. The director's cut certainly seems to be the real cut, as 1408 seems to move along at its own pace within that version. It is simply a film about a man who checks into a hotel and we enjoy the suspense build up as the film's main protagonist soldiers forth. Håfström clearly knows what he's doing and he is influenced by a bevy of horror's most keenly detailed films, and that is why it is such a shame that his punches are pulled by Dimension Films for the US audience. His razors are dulled, his poison is given an antidote, and his biggest attack of all is completely de-clawed. Shame on the Weinsteins and shame on the US audience that always has a hankering for these sappy moments of comforting resolve. Other than that I have no strong feelings on the matter.

The Weinsteins did do one good thing and that is to suggest the casting of the Dolphin Hotel's manager, Mr. Gerald Olin. He probably should've been played by some little old white guy with a fancy accent, but instead we get the absolutely iconic Samuel L. Jackson. Jackson is surely one of my favorite actors and it is simply because I enjoy watching him in anything he is in, and 1408 is no exception.
