John Cusack portrays Mike Enslin, a renowned skeptic of all things paranormal who has authored many books about the subject. He is compiling a book containing America's most famous haunted sites, and has just learned of a myth surrounding the Dolphin Hotel in New York.
Supposedly no guest has survived longer than sixty minutes in the establishment's infamous room 1408. Enslin books the room specifically and flies to New York, prepared to debunk yet another supernatural claim. When the writer initially arrives things are entirely benign, though it only takes a few minutes in the suite before Mike's beliefs are tested.
1408 was nominated for a Teen Choice Award. It earned $131 million at the box office -- five times its $25 million budget.
