Film I saw
The LSC plays movies every weekend, to which I get free admission, and I usually watch all the films, no matter how bad I expect them to be :-)
Yesterday I saw 1408. It is a horror film based on a Stephen King short story. (It is about room 1408 of the Dolphin Hotel, where…)
The movie isn’t bad at all. It even has a happy ending. (The director’s cut apparently doesn’t.)
I saw a poster that said it
ranks with The Shining as one of the best Stephen King adaptations ever.
Obviously, the guy forgot about The Shawshank Redemption.
One might argue that Shawshank wasn’t a horror movie, but then again, neither was The Shining.
Really: Watch the trailer, it’s hilarious:

Neither was Psycho. Here’s the trailer to “Pscyho: A Love Story”; watch out for the “shower” scene: Pscyho: A Love Story (an ad might play first).
And “The Parent Trap” was made in 1961; too early for a film about lesbian teenagers, you’d think.
BTW that film was remade in 1998 debuting Lindsay Lohan as the 11-year-old twins, and there was the similar “It Takes Two” in 1995 with the Olsen twins as two unrelated 8-year-old (presumably) girls who happen to look identical.
