Review: 1408

A simple thriller-ish psychotic breakdown movie, that gets on your nerves in a good way. All about one hotel room, the 90 minute ride is just about as long as it should be. Applying the no holds barred imagination rule (as in, everything goes), the hotel room has a lot to offer, going through all the possible scary stuff the elements have to bring. Though using rule based story telling would’ve heightened the atmosphere and thriller element (see for instance The Butterfly Effect).
That said, direction is imaginitive, acting is on par (though it’s mostly a one man show, that of John Cusack), and while not all too memorable, it’s a quick rush.7+.
