Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
My father told me to watch this movie and explain it to him. Since I was doing nothing anyway, I gave it a shot. The name of the movie was '1408'. John Cusack plays a ghost writer, who doesn't actually believe in ghosts or god or heaven or anything in particular. Samuel Jackson is the manager of this hotel called the Dolphin.
The room 1408 is said to be a very evil room and unavailable to guests but the writer belittles his way in. Lots of stuff happens. The movie is taken decently, the sequences and the horror (mebe you could call it that) were taken well but it isn't actually horror genre.
In that essence, it's only half a story here. The room is indeed paranormal, which is proven in the movie but its working is not explained, which is my main strife with a lot of movies trying to work the dynamics of a different world. Not bad to sit through if you've got nothing else to watch. Lack of complete explanation bothers me.
Couldn't really explain because the movie never explains. Open to interpretation but there's not even the basework provided for it.
