Yes they deserve to die, and I hope they burn in hell...in 1408.

I think its going to be badass because the main character is a down to earth human being that isnt the type that would say, "Lets split up, Ill go into the woods to hide!"

they completely and utterly ruined the story line in the original short story. 1408 adds up to 13 and ties in HEAVILY to the dark tower storyline. the room is a gateway to hell/a demon sent by the crimson king to kill the writer. the writer is a form of stephen king in an alternate earth.

There are NO ghosts/ghouls/boogiemen etc in the book. there is only a disembodied voice and the room starts shifting and melting in order to burn the writer alive. he only escapes when his tape recorder in his pocket burns up and it knocks him back to reality. then he is able to burst through the door and a man with a bucket of ice puts out the fire.


weaaaaak.

what i'm saying is that the movie story is NOTHING like the book story. they can't be the same with ghosts and whatnot.

I can't wait. I'm a horror movie aficionado. I know it won't be THE horror movie (Which is The Exorcist atm btw), but it still looks good.

As I watched the previews one thing really nagged at me. The scene/preview where he was waving for help and got the attention of some guy across the street on the same floor - Everything that he did, the other guy mimicked in timely fashion; Yet when the guy across the street was stabbed from behind, wouldn't Cusack have been killed at the same time the dude across the street was? That didn't make any sense to be that the timing would be off at that moment, but nowhere else.

The point was to freak him out. Not to kill him at the beggining. That would take all the fun out of it.

It's actually beginning by the way.

However, that's not really a compelling argument. I wasn't questioning or saying that I wished he would have died, I was stating that the timing was off in that shot and he should have turned around several seconds sooner to fill that plot hole. However, I realize that by not seeing the death it takes the whole "suspense" out of the movie.
