1408

I've been waiting for this movie for a long time, ever since I first heard of the project I was wondering whether they would succeed to translate the creepy feeling of the short story into a movie. For the most part of the first half they did manage to pull it off, I haven't been so tense in a movie for a while. However, after the halfway mark has been reached the suspense starts to ebb away and makes room for more or less shocking moments and revelations. Still I was surprised how funny 1408 turned out to be in some places, quite the opposite to the original story.
All in all it was an entertaining horror movie, a very good adaption of a King story and a fun evening.
Rating: 8/10
