Memorable quote: “Hotel rooms are a naturally creepy place, don’t you think? How many people have slept in that bed before you? How many of them were sick? How many of them lost their minds? How many of them—died?”
Scare factor: Ever felt uneasy staying in an unfamiliar hotel room? This Stephen King-inspired tale will make you never want to set foot in one again. This underrated gem has John Cusack as a writer who specializes in haunted hotels, while not really believing any of the stuff he writes about. That is, until he checks in to a certain room in a New York hotel. He’s about to become a believer.
