Scary film alert! I saw ‘1408’ at the cinema last night, with my work colleague and friend, Sophie. It’s based on a short story by Stephen King (being a King fan I have read the story) and starring John Cusack as the cynical, horror writer, and Samuel L Jackson as the hotel employee who warns the writer that room 1408 is “an evil ******* room!”
He hit the nail on the head with that comment! It’s a claustrophobic, terrifying, your worst nightmare come true, evil hotel room.
I watched the film on the edge of my seat and through wide-open eyes, and loved every frightening moment. Maybe I’m a little warped, or maybe I just appreciate mind bending physiological thrillers.
Before the film, Sophie and I had a couple of hours to spare, so we had a liquid dinner at a near by bar. Office politics were discussed once we were sat at our table, but the more wine we drank the less serious we became. In fact, we were having so much fun we nearly forgot the purpose of the evening was to attend the cinema, to view the adaptation of a story by one of our favourite writers.
I even have pictures to prove it!
Pictures of the day:
Meet my work colleague and friend.
Why is one glass of wine never enough?
Is it me, or am I seeing double?
I'm sure we're supposed to be somewhere else?
