This adaptation of Stephen King’s chilling short story makes for a VERY chilling horror film (of the PG-13 variety). John Cusack is very good as a cynical, jaded paranormal investigator/writer whose speciality is supposedly haunted hot-spots. He finds a challenge in the title room at the Dolphin, a classic hotel in downtown New York where the proprietor (Samuel L. Jackson) tries and tries to warn him away from staying – nobody lasts more than an hour…literally. Mikael Hafstrom (“Derailed”) studied Kubrick’s “The Shining” (1980) to a T to get the visual style of this film right, and boy did he ever. With terrific effects, when simplicity itself washes over the screen, this film really scares the bejesus out of you!
