|Film Poster for 1408|
1408 is about a cynical writer of haunted places in search for a real paranormal experience. He receives a mysterious postcard that warning him not to stay in room 1408 at The Dolphin Hotel, ignoring the advice he takes the challenge and stays in the room. Upon entering the room he soon realises that there is something evil in the room that does not wish him to leave. Upon staying in the room he encounters more than he could ever ask for. The room itself goes through some changes for example turning to artic cold temperatures, even filling with water from a painting on the wall. The tale shows what is happening in writer Mike Enslin head as he belives to be experiencing the trauma of the pervious 50 deaths that had occured in the room.
From a narrative piont of view the story can stay in the same place revolving around the room but still hold endless posibilities through a characters imagination. Therefore doing the same with our title 'the room at...' we could think outside of the box.
