Review If elements of 1408 seem a little familiar, it shouldn't be a surprise. Here's John Cusack, once again having lodging problems (see also Identity). Here's a supernatural debunker faced with something that refuses to be debunked (see also The Reaping). And here's a movie about a room-for-rent where people go in but don't come out (see also Vacancy). Yet, despite all of these recycled plot elements bobbing around, there's nothing stale about 1408, which is easily the best horror film of 2007. Too often, we see a movie with a great setup like this ruined by a subpar ending. However, 1408 deftly sidesteps that trap, delivering a conclusion that somehow manages not to disappoint while at the same time leaving things open-ended enough that viewer interpretation comes into play...The PG-13 rating might argue that 1408 is for teenagers, but that's a mistake. This is the most mature horror movie of the year - far more adult and sophisticated than the tedious Hostel Part II. If you like to be creeped out by movies, this is one to see. It reminds us what it's like to be scared in a theater rather than overwhelmed by buckets of blood and gore.

Review Director Mikael Hafstrom's adaptation of Stephen King's short story 1408 is an immensely satisfying middle finger to screenwriting manuals and formulas everywhere, a movie that breaks the rules without feeling overly self-conscious or gimmicky. A skillful visualization of King's tale, as well as a film that works independently on its own terms, it proves that cinema is every bit as capable as the written word of conveying the internal qualities--thought, emotion, etc.--for which movies as an art form are supposedly ill-equipped...In fact, the most impressive thing about the movie is that for all it has in common with novels and plays, it's exhilaratingly cinematic--through impeccable camera placement, editing, and sound design, Hafstrom orchestrates an exercise in suspense that puts most of the summer franchise movies to shame...Cusack's strong performance, and the elegantly constructed screenplay by Matt Greenberg, Scott Alexander, and Larry Karaszweski, allow 1408 to take detours into emotionally subtle scenes of the sort that were familiar in earlier King adaptations like Christine and The Dead Zone...Scary, smart, and moving, it's a terrific summer entertainment for grown-ups.
