This film was a notable exception. I like both the leads in 1408, and the story of the writer driven to seek out haunted places as part of dealing with his personal demons struck a cord with me.
I was not disappointed. While not long on plot, the pacing of the film was fast enough to keep me interested, and the twists, in general, kept me guessing. Yes, I did scream, duck and run in place at least 4 or 5 times during the film. Still, it was worth it.
