Do not enter Room 1408 - Best horror movie of all time
I laugh at vampires and ghosts, do not say this again
Horror in a hub - Do not enter Room 1408
Starring - John Cusack, Samuel L Jackson
Horror fans, get ready to be thrilled because we have got a movie which runs a chill down spines! 1408 is a room number in a New York hotel- DOLPHIN which claims to be haunted.
Ghostwriter/investigator Mike Enslin (John Cusack) thinks that it would be an ideal plot to write on, so he decides to stay a night at 1408. The manager Samuel L Jackson persuades him not to stay because he says that it is difficult to survive a single hour in the room, as there have been already 56 deaths in this hotel room.
Cusack had already stayed at many haunted places such mansions and bungalows and was of the view that ghosts and spirits don't really exist.
I am telling you from my experience. I started watching this movie at 11:30 pm and it ended at around 1 am. Normally I freak out while watching horror flicks but at this time I was thrilled and shocked. I was sitting with my Dad in my living room. When I watched the first half of the movie, I had an urge to go to the loo which I did not do because I did not want to miss a single scene of the movie. After watching the whole movie when I closed the lights of my living room and said bye to my Dad who sleeps in other bedroom and entered my bedroom and opened the lights, I felt that I was in ROOM 1408. For one point of time, I fainted and then drank some water and got to the loo and then I felt relaxed. Believe me my dear, I have seen several horror and vampire movies and even psycho movies, but this movie was outstanding as I think a viewer who watches the movie constantly without a break feels the psychotic fibrillations of John Cusack in himself.
Anyway, this is by far the best psychological horror movie I have seen till date. There is nothing more horrific than being tortured mentally and this movie is all that. It so easily manages to play with your mind even when you know that it is the character on screen that is being subjected to the pain and not you but still you feel the aftereffects. This according to me shows the true brilliance of the film.
The movie just sucks you in right from the first scene and you cannot simply take your eyes and most importantly your mind out of the movie, and I must also add that John Cusack is outstanding in the film, truly a gem of a horror movie and this review comes from a guy who never had a single horror movie among his favorite movie list.
My rating for this movie is 9/10
Anyway go ahead and watch it and post your views.
