1408SANTA MONICA, CA - Garnering $72 million at the box-office, 1408 arrives as a Two-Disc Collector's Edition DVD October 2, 2007 from Genius Products and Dimension Films.

John Cusack (Identity, Runaway Jury) gives a chilling performance as a best-selling author who specializes in debunking the paranormal. For his latest novel, he checks into the Dolphin Hotel's infamous room 1408 where there have been 57 deaths since it's opening and shortly discovers that unlike his previous "haunted" encounters, the terror of room 1408 is real!

Based on Stephen King's story published in the Everything's Eventual Collection, 1408 was brought to the screen by director Mikael Hafstrom (Derailed), and also stars Samuel L. Jackson (Snakes on a Plane, Star Wars films) and Mary McCormack (The West Wing). Featuring an extended director's cut with a surprising alternate ending, the theatrical version of the film, five deleted scenes, collectible Dolphin Hotel postcards and much more!

Renowned horror novelist Mike Enslin (Cusack) believes only in what he can see with his own two eyes. When he insists on staying in the reportedly haunted suite 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel against the grave warnings of the hotel manager (Jackson), he discovers the room's deadly secret - an evil so powerful, no one has ever survived an hour within its walls.
