  1. I love Stephen King but I’m usually leery of the movies based on his short stories, because they tend to be over-padded and lame/dumb. Good to know that this is an exception, I might just have to check it out.

    • Thanks Sunny, it’s been a while since I read 1408, but I believe I liked them both in their own media. Short stories often need a little padding to stretch into a film.

  2. I have to say I don’t really remember actually enjoying this one, but my review of it seems to indicate that, while flawed, it’s worth a look: “1408 is both a satisfying addition to the King Book-to-Movie Oeuvre, as well as a well made scary movie in it’s own right. Cusack delves into a character with realistic motivation wholeheartedly, and I, as a viewer, appreciate the effort. the effects are first rate, the scares really scary, and the twist (yes, there’s a twist) is a gem.”

    Must revisit this at some point to make sure I was correct!
