1408 superb trailer online

JohnCusack.jpgThe trailer is out on the Internet for 1408, the Stephen King adapted film from Mikael Håfström who brought us Derailed (Filmstalker review), and starring John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson and Mary McCormack.

The film tells the story of a man who's daughter died at an early age and ever since he's been obsessed with finding out about the paranormal. He's found nothing however, and he's become a professional debunker. That is until he enters room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel, where fifty six people have died horrible deaths to date, and then he begins to find out how real the afterlife can be.

The trailer is over at Yahoo Movies [WMV:QT:M:480p:720p:1080p] through Coming Soon.

I have to say that even without the fact that I'm a big Cusack fan, this film looks really, really good. I'm a bit dubious about the moment with the painting, that might all turn a little too bizarre for me, but the rest of the ideas looks fantastic. The calling out of the room on the laptop and being told that the Police are in there and he isn't really struck me as a powerful moment.

Definitely worth seeing. What do you feel about it?



Yikes! Thanks for posting this in the afternoon Richard, or else I'd be up all night!

I just love it!

Looks pretty damn good. Creepy even. BUT...

I am a huge skeptic of horror/scary movies. The trailers often times look really good and then the film sucks. Scary movies just aren't scary to me anymore. Having said that, this one looks good and I'll see itsimply for the sake that Cusack is in it.

That scene where he's looking out the window at himself across the street is crazy cool.
