Directed by Mikael Håfström, 1408 is adapted from the terrifying short story by suspense master, Stephen King and stars John Cusack as Mike Enslin, a renowned horror novelist who believes only in what he can see with his own two eyes. But after a string of bestsellers discrediting paranormal events in the most infamous haunted houses and graveyards around the world, he has no real proof of life...afterlife.
But Enslin's phantom-free run of long and lonely nights is about to change forever when he checks into suite 1408 of the notorious Dolphin Hotel for his latest project, "Ten Nights in Haunted Hotel Rooms." Defying the warnings of the hotel manager, Gerald Olin (Samuel L Jackson), the author is the first person in years to stay in the reputedly haunted room. Another bestseller may be imminent, but like many Stephen King heroes, first he must go from sceptic to true believer - and confront his demons to survive the night.
