Horror, Suspense/Thriller
An author of paranormal guidebooks (John Cusack) checks into a notorious Manhattan hotel room whose guests never survive the night. Adapted from a Stephen King story, this trite but watchable chiller plays like a scaled-down version of The Shining, with Cusack driven over the edge by hallucinations of his abusive father and dead daughter. Back in the '80s, adaptations of King's fiction were the cutting edge in Hollywood horror; now, in the age of Saw and Hostel, they seem like old-fashioned comfort food, something for parents to enjoy while their kids are in the next theater digging the torture and evisceration. Mikael Hafstrom directed, and Samuel L. Jackson has a fine old time as the boogety-boogety hotel manager.
