Audience Reviews for 1408

    Good execution of a deeply flawed story. The film added some more elements to explain the halluciation Mike experiences, for a low budget film, it's not too bad, though there was virtually zero scare.

    Underrated and overlooked, "1408" delivers old-school chills with a stand out supporting performance from Jackson.

    1408 teeters on the edge of thriller brilliance with a clever ending and shocking psychological tension, however too often feels a bit silly and slightly depressing. Why did Mike flip out at the very first sign of bizarreness? Still it is an above-average thriller with a great John Cusack. Rating: 64
