1408


(2007) ****1/2

Michael Enslin isn't much impressed by the haunted hotel rooms he writes about until he stays in the Dolphin Hotel's sinister room 1408, where so many grisly and inexplicable deaths have occurred that the management doesn't typically allow the room to be occupied, and he discovers very quickly why they were right.

Loved this film, I think it was one of, if not the best film adaptation of a SK story.

I'd put it just behind The Shining, but I agree.

Here's my list:

1) The Shining
2) 1408
3) Misery
4) Carrie
5) It

If we're talking horror, I like this list. If talking SK, we have to put shawshank on there.

trevor makes a completely fair point on the horror v non-horror distinction. if it were a top 10, The Dead Zone and maybe Dolores Claiborne would be on it.

i also agree with jsp's list, although i might sub out It for Salem's Lot.
