1408 is another Stephen King adaptation where the main protagonist is a writer. It is also a fine psychological horror movie and welcome change of pace from the ultra violent, gore polluted, torture porn flicks currently infecting cinema.
A good, old-fashioned horror flick, one that relies on supernatural chills, psychological twists and top-shelf special effects -- as opposed to the recent trend toward ball gags, bound wrists and bad lighting.
Una buena idea y unos 20 minutos iniciales inquietantes y sugestivos se descarrilan rápidamente hacia la parafernalia y el exceso visual. Nada convence, excepto el esfuerzo de John Cusack por convencernos de que se lo ha tomado en serio.
I'm very hard to please when it comes to the horror genre, but pleased I am with 1408, a dread concoction from Stephen King, sharply committed to film by a clever screenplay, solid direction and terrific performances.
