YMMV / 1408

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: 1408 is one of the few underrated gems within Stephen King's very few successful horror films based on his stories.
  • Narm: Mike attacking his mini fridge.
  • Nightmare Fuel: We've only just begun...
  • Spoiled by the Format: Averted. By the time Enslin seemingly escapes 1408, enough time has passed to make the viewer think this actually might be the ending, along with showing some character development to make it feel like less of a cop-out.
  • Uncanny Valley: The voice from the phone is impeccably perfect and polite, but towards the end the phone starts to melt and the voice accordingly starts to distort...
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Oh, come on! Every single thing that happens in Room 1408 seems a scary Disney Acid Sequence. Lampshaded in the story, when Enslin compares it to a bad trip and worries that the events are really just a hallucination caused by the cognac being dosed..
  • The Woobie: Enslin. Perhaps a Jerkass Woobie, considering how rude and dismissive he is to most of the other characters.
    • Mike in a sense resides in the realm of Jerkass Woobie. While he's a bit of a Deadpan Snarker and abandoned Lily, treated his father like garbage and overall acts like an arrogant arse, you do sympathize with his pain of the loss of his daughter and have no faith to go when Katie passed. It doesn't help 1408 constantly pushes his pressure points to break down.
    • By some extension, Lily. She lost Katie, Mike abandoned her, and in two of the endings, lost him too as well.
