    I loved "1408"! I thought Cusack was great - I'm a big fan of his anyway, but I thought he really was great in the role. Plus the movie itself was very freaky and disorienting, which was the point. I'm pretty fussy about adaptations of SK's works, and this one passed my usual "white glove test".

    Movies rarely portray the characters experiences as deeply as the books
    The best adaptions seem to be the shorter works
    I thought 1408 was one of the best adaptions too

    I love this movie! I actually saw it before I'd read the short story - I prefer the movie - probably because it is more 'fleshed out'. Just sent creeps down my spine for some reason-not many movies manage to do that!

    Great movie! Cusack played the role of skeptic just right. My own favorite piece was hearing Karen Carpenter on a radio with no power source. Hypothetically if a "believer" was in 1408 he or she would have put up more resistance. Cusack crumbled after two happenings that his rational mind could not explain. I thought that this worked so very well in 1408....brilliant!
