Next up is “1408,” a 2007 thriller that is sure to frighten. The movie plays with lighting, sound and timing to create a meticulously crafted work of art. “1408” follows a writer who is skeptical of ghosts and the supernatural. But when he stays at a hotel infamous for a haunted room (1408), he starts believing in everything. Instead of the stereotypical gore-filled film, “1408” is deeper and strikes terror into its audience through psychological means alone, with its well-paced overtones of anguish and shock. “1408” pioneered its own thoughtful film style, which many people can appreciate. One will leave the movie questioning the very fabric of reality for days afterward.
