In and out of Room 1408

“1408” is thrilling but random. Three different themes are presented, but none are developed enough to make an emotional impact. This isn’t surprising because the source material is a short story Stephen King wrote to have fun with hotel room scenery. The film adaptation seems to be a training exercise for something more meaningful. I recommend it for action directors who wish to learn more about timing.

I’ve been writing for student publications the last few weeks. I’ll make a more specific announcement when they go to press.
