1408

 (2007)

1408 Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Horror novelist Mike Enslin believes only in what he can see with his own two eyes. But after a string of best-sellers discrediting paranormal events in the most infamous haunted houses and graveyards around the world, he has no real proof of life—afterlife. But Enslin's phantom-free run of long and lonely nights is about to change forever when he checks into suite 1408 of the notorious Dolphin Hotel. Defying the warnings of the hotel manager, the author is the first person in years to stay in the reputedly haunted room. Another best-seller may be imminent, but first he must go from skeptic to true believer—and ultimately, survivor..

1408 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

1408 brings us into its world via a 1080p, 2.39:1-framed transfer. What we see is a somewhat dark, nondescript transfer that offers little in the way of eye-catching detail. There are a few very nice looking moments, such as a surfing scene in chapter three that is drenched in natural light, but the vast majority of the movie that takes place in room 1408 rarely provides viewers with any material worth getting excited over. That's not to say the movie doesn't benefit from the 1080p treatment. It's definitely a good transfer, just a remarkably average one in the world of high definition transfers, thanks more to bland cinematography and odd color schemes than any fault of the transfer itself. There is a golden tint to much of the image with a hint of green, too. It reminded me, in a way, of the look seen in The Matrix, but not quite as drastic and with less of a green push. As a result, flesh tones never really look all that natural, either. Black levels are fine, and some of the darker scenes in the film, such as one that takes place in the ducts above the rooms, turned out quite well. The print itself features absolutely no blemishes. Fine detail is never seen in abundance and there is generally a soft edge to the picture. 1408 is another in an ever-growing list of transfers that are acceptable, but not awe-inspiring.


1408 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

1408 unlocks its secrets on Blu-ray with a rather strong Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. At the open of the film, at least, we are presented with a bland and fairly standard listen. Music and effects play across the front with little rear channel presence. We find the occasional nicety that makes its way to the rear, but the track definitely features a front-heavy feel to it. As we move along, it gets substantially more aggressive and immersive. Rears are still used in support, but their use continues to build and finally begins featuring some great discrete effects. As the track gets spookier and spookier along with the movie, the lossless option definitely aids in creating a tense, scary track. I don't want to mention any specific instances for fear of ruining parts of the movie, but rest assured the soundtrack does a fine job in recreating the tension and fear that is to be found in room 1408. Dialogue is strong and natural, too. There is a nice clarity and presence to the entirety of the soundtrack. It is very well-mixed with nothing coming across as too loud at reference volume, and the track is very good at doing what it's primary purpose should be: compliment the movie perfectly without drawing unwarranted attention to itself. It's not as precise and engaging as Transformers, for example, but for a soundtrack that accompanies a psychological horror movie, it's plenty good.
