75
A deft Stephen King freak-out.
75
Heebie-jeebies are guaranteed.
75
This is the old stuff, the good stuff, the tried-and-true stuff of shrewdly accomplished audience manipulation.
75
An entertainingly hairy paranormal affair.
75
At his best, King's most effective creatures are not the ones behind creaking doors, but inside crooked minds.

Chicago Tribune
Swift, sharp adaptation of Stephen King's short story (from the "Everything's Eventual" collection).
75
Sharp little psychological thriller.

This is the most mature horror movie of the year - far more adult and sophisticated than the tedious Hostel Part II. If you like to be creeped out by movies, this is one to see. It reminds us what it's like to be scared in a theater rather than overwhelmed by buckets of blood and gore.

In the grand scheme of things, the Dolphin Hotel is no Overlook, but it's no cheesy slaughter motel either.

The Hollywood Reporter
Even with its flaws, 1408 deserves to be appreciated by connoisseurs of acting and bravura filmmaking.

Miami Herald
For about an hour or so, 1408 has you thinking you're watching The Next Great Horror Movie: That's how good the first half of this adaptation of Stephen King's short story about a haunted hotel room is.
50
A curse would be a great improvement on the wishy-washy wickedness of this movie.
