    "1408" is a horror movie that doesn't know what it does, but it still manages to give the good chills and scares.

    I watch horror movies when there's nothing better to watch. So I guess you could say its relatively consistent. But more often than any other genre, I'm disappointed by horror films. 1408 provides something different. it has a very solid lead actor, John Cusack, at the helm, and Stephen King's overall vision. Its a remarkably simple story but with the right tweaks it became its own monster. Like if you had your own personal horrors locked away in your head, room 1408 would slowly and sadistically put you to death with them. Its heavily weighted on one character's personal struggles. Which is gutsy in a lot of ways but it was well done. This wasn't a jittery, jumpy, bloody, or even crazy type of scary, this was a sad hollow and empty type of scary that we hope we will never have to experience. Though a few of those scenes get pretty trippy. You don't make a movie this well delivered too often. It stands as one of my all-time favorites in the horror category. Full Review »

    This. movie. was. so. horrible. I don't care if im giving spoiler alerts, the movie sucked. Everything about it sucked more then your mom. I don't even give it a score. The whole thing was just horrible. The movie took place in the same god damn room for an hour and a **** half. Mike died in the end anyways. SO WHATS THE POINT. jesus Christ. I watched this online and afterwards threw my computer out the window. I then bought a new computer to order the movie online and then burn it. I have no respect for Stephen king now. I have no respect for anything. I'm angry at the world. And your mom because she missed my calls. AND ESPECIALLY YOU GARRISON. **** YOU FOR PUTTING ME THROUGH THIS HELL. Full Review »
