This is a good horror/scary movie...it starts very well with great potencial and unfortunatly doesn't end as well as it starts but that still doesn't ruin the movie. This box set seems to be the only way I could find of getting the movie with the original theatrical ending included and not just the alternate ending from the Director's Cut. For that alone the 2 DVD box is a must.

Format: DVD
Based on one the short stories from Stephen King in his 2002 collection "Everything's Eventual", '1408' is about an author named Mike Enslin (played by John Cusack) who is writing the next book in his series called The 10 Most Haunted Hotels. Enslin is losing his belief in the supernatural though as he has never actually seen a ghost. Then one day he receives an anonymous postcard telling him not to stay in room 1408 at The Dolphin Hotel in New York.

After convicing the hotel manager (Samuel L. Jackson) to let him stay in 1408 and being warned that no one who has stayed in the room lasts longer than an hour, Enslin begins to see ghosts of the people that have been killed or died in the room and also experiences ghosts from his own past.

Everyone knows that King's film adaptions usually aren't that good, especially the ones from his short stories (with the exception of Stand by Me/The Body) but 1408 is actually a very creepy and well thought out film. Once Enslin gets into room 1408 things get very strange indeed and may be a little confusing at times, but all does make sense in the end.

Cusack does and excellent job in his role as Enslin and made me wonder what he was thinking about when acting out the part as he does seem genuinely terrified throughout the whole ordeal.

Overall this is a scary, weird and exciting supernatural thriller that both fans of Stephen King and the horror genre in general should enjoy. There's plenty of clever special effects and lots of scares and enough to keep you thinking from start to finish.

I remember watching 1408 in the cinema, and found it to be a genuinely scary film. Admittedly, many of those scares came from jumpy moments, but then the horror would continue, unrelenting. I'm a bit of a fan of films based on Stephen King's work, as the characters tend to be carefully built and have real problems in their lives, and John Cusack's writer is no exception to this. This film is a testament to his acting ability that he can hold his own throughout the film while often being the only actor on screen.

However, this cut of the film isn't as tense. Some of the scenes are dragged out and lose their intensity. And the ending is different - about as different from the original theatrical version as is possible. It means that overall the film feels less scary and ends with less of a bang. In my mind, it doesn't feel like a Stephen King ending, though I don't know how the original story ended.

Bottom-line: It's an interesting horror film with some scary moments, and John Cusack is excellent in this. However, 1408's Director's Cut isn't as tense and ends on a bit of a poor note. Not a good horror film, but not a bad one either.

Format: DVD
This is a film that starts out well - very well - but loses its way after a while. You can tell this because the film had alternate endings, always a sign that the studio can't make its mind up about where the story ought to go.

The plot, basically, has Mike Endlin (Cusack) playing a writer who writes books about supposedly haunted places, and who usually gives credence to the stories of hauntings, even though he doesn't believe in them himself. He receives written invitations to visit such sites from people, usually hotel owners, keen to improve their popularity via notoriety (and free publicity) in his books. One day he receives an anti-invitation, from a hotel telling him NOT to stay with them.
Intrigued, and convinced that this is a riff on the usual way of attracting his interest, he goes to the hotel and meets the manager, Gerald Olin (Samuel L. Jackson), who does everything in his power to stop Endlin staying there, specifically in room 1408, where no-one has survived for more than an hour. Cusack insists on staying there... you can imagine the rest...

Jackson plays with his usual funky gravitas (shame he's not used more than he is in this film, since he has some of the best screen-presence around) and shares the acting honours with Cusack, who does a superb job of transitting quickly from world-weary cynic to terrified pawn in some supernatural game. There are some genuinely jarring moments in the first half-hour or so which had me checking behind the sofa, and which promised to develop into something cinematically very special.
However, eventually the effects become rather gross, thus losing their power to enthrall and shock - in suspense films less really is more, especially where the supernatural is concerned.
