I enjoy the whole lot of the movie. The plot, the effect, the thrill I get from watching it and of course, the selection of cast had made a lot of difference. It's about a room known as 1408 at Dolphin Hotel in New York City that has a long history of guest who died in gruesome ways in less than 1 hour. Cusack who plays Mike Enslin is sort of a ghost writer/critic wants to experience it and of course prove that it's just bogus while Jackson who plays Mr Olin is the hotel manager that tries to talk Enslin out of it. This tug-of-war film is very interesting and dense. It does not divert your attention away from the screen because if you do, you'll miss out of the little details and also the message it's trying to bring across to the audience. So, I have to watch The Shining (1980) since it was also a writer and a haunted hotel.
