1408


Adapted from the terrifying short story by suspense master, Stephen King. Renowned horror novelist Mike Enslin (John Cusack) believes only in what he can see with his own two eyes. But after a string of bestsellers discrediting paranormal events in the most infamous haunted houses and graveyards around the world, he has no real proof of life…afterlife. But Enslin’s phantom-free run of long and lonely nights is about to change forever when he checks into suite 1408 of the notorious Dolphin Hotel for his latest project, “Ten Nights in Haunted Hotel Rooms.” Defying the warnings of the hotel manager (Samuel L Jackson), the author is the first person in years to stay in the reputedly haunted room. Another bestseller may be imminent, but like all Stephen King heroes, first he must go from skeptic to true believer – and ultimately survive the night.

Overall menurut gw film ini ngga terlalu horor, ngga terlalu menarik. Standar lah... John Cusack emang lebih cocok main di film drama romantis atau komedi romantis daripada horor, dan Samuel L Jackson lebih poll maen film action. Sepertinya ide dasar film ini bersifat twisted dan sick, tapi kok jatuhnya jadi agak maksa ya? Ceritanya ngga kuat, ga cukup "sakit" untuk jadi twisted movie. Gw masih lebih prefer "Hide and Seek" atau "Silence of The Lamb" atau "Omen" untuk kategori film twisted horror dibandingin film ini.

Udah deh, bang Cusack. Maen film komedi romantis lagi ajaa.. Dijamin pasti keren deh! Hehehehe...
