The clip receive key from 1408 (2007) with John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson
Most hotels have switched to magnetics.
An actual key. That's a nice touch... it's antiquey.
We have magnetic cards also, but electronics don't seem to work in 1408.
Hope you don't have a pacemaker.
General manager claims that the phantom in room interferes...
I have never used the word "phantom."
Oh, I'm sorry. Spirit? Specter?
No, you misunderstand.
Whatever's in 1408 is nothing like that.
Then what is it?
It's an evil fucking room.
Oh, oui. Tres bien.
Why don't the owners just close the room?
The Yasuko Corporation prefers to pretend there's no problem.
Just as they pretend there's no 13th floor.
The room, it's got to be filthy.
I mean, the sheets haven't been changed in what? 11 years?
No no no, we're very professional.
1408 gets a light turn once a month.
I supervise, the maids work in pairs.
We treat the room as if it's a chamber
filled with poison gas.
We only stay 10 minutes and I insist the door remain open.
A few years ago, a young maid from El Salvador
found herself locked in the bathroom.
She was only there for a few moments,
but when we pulled her out, she was...
She was dead.
She had taken a pair of scissors
and gouged her eyes out.
She was laughing hysterically.
