Watched this on saturday.

Had nothing better to do so i thought id watch a movie.

Its a stephen king adaptation and normally i wouldnt touch one of his with a bardge poll, but i gave it a shot.

It was ok.

5/10 id give it. I wouldnt jump around reccomending it to everyone though.

Its roughly about a guy who goes around staying overnight in haunted hotels.
He gets just a postcard with "dont stay in room 1408" written on it which of course intreges him. So he eventually gets to go to the hotel and get the key.
Theres abit to much of "are you sure you really want to stay in this room" stuff going on for my liking.
And eventually the warning from the matre dee " I dont want to clear up the mess" put me off.
From the moment the intrepid reporter goes into the room things start to happen but his decline into near madness goes abit to quick for my liking.
One minute hes a perfectly rational sceptic and with in minutes of being the room hes a total mad man.

Some good cgi and some good effects though.
But all in all not a very good film. IMO.
Dont rush out to see it.
