...a good John Cusack movie. He's made some questionable-at-best choices lately. Oh, and first.
April 4, 2006, 2:03 a.m. CST

I wonder what the first sequel will be, Snakes on a Bus, or Snakes on a Train?
April 4, 2006, 3:10 a.m. CST
Starring Sam "Da Man" Jackson and Phillip Seymour Hoffman... PSH: "First I'm going to take off this dog's muzzle, and have him attack you. Then I'm going to unlock the other cages in the back, and let them kill the bus driver. Then I'm going to call Keanu Reeves private cell phone number and say 'What do you do... what do you do'then I'm going to feed the dogs some biscuits, then I'm going to stop at a greyhound station and take a huge shit. Then I'm going to sic my dogs on Tom Cruise's house, then I'm going to kill him in front of you."

I read this story just last night. It's cool 'n' all, but I can't see how they're going to stretch it out to a full length movie.

I know I did. Great plot. And has Cusack checking in weird ass rooms.
April 4, 2006, 7:59 a.m. CST
and there isnt much of a way that that short story could be made into any kind of decent movie. There wasnt really enough to it. It's just going to be another badly made King movie, no doubt. Visit Slydesblog.com

...but it's guys like you, who'd like to see Sam Jackson in everything, that lead casting directors to say: "Hey! You know who we should get for this movie? Sam Jackson!" Even when he's not at all right for the part (as in this case). Is there a movie in development right now that Sam doesn't at least do a cameo in? Don't get me wrong. I love the guy. But he's WAY fucking overexposed right now.

It wasn't great, but it had some good moments. Cusack needs a hit in this kind of genre. He's become the lame go-to guy in romantic "comedies" while Jeremy Piven, who used to be in his shadow, is breaking out. I love this short story, and hope they do it justice. And maybe they'll put some motherfucking snakes in the room.

This will a great film. There's plenty of material, if they flashback and show the debunkers previous "encounters". The night with Dahmer could be hilarious.
April 4, 2006, 10:03 a.m. CST
April 4, 2006, 10:23 a.m. CST
... but for a 90 minute movie they will need to create more material. The movie will sink or swim depending on what they come up with. Here's hoping they're successful.
April 4, 2006, 10:24 a.m. CST
aside from being short you guys are completely ignoring whats going to make hard to adapt. What happens in the hotel room is not really over but rather mental. Oh and where Mist!!!!
April 4, 2006, 10:31 a.m. CST
pulled off right, that could be scary as shit. you can never go wrong with unseen tentacle monsters and massive dismemberment.

Sam should be in this movie because.... when you absolutely, positively have to go into a room full of ghosts: accept no substitutes. I can see it already... John: which room is it? Sam: The one that is full of bad motherfucking ghosts.

Yes, I want room 1408. But I don't want to sleep on anything. I don't want to bleed or drool or ejaculate on anything. And I don't want to sleep on anything that's been bled on, drooled on or ejaculated on. My research tells me that I'm going to be posessed and overwhelmed by evil spirits in this "haunted room", but I don't think I will experience any particular manifestation. So right now, I'd like the key to the room and spend as much time as possible in the room.
April 4, 2006, 1:05 p.m. CST
You just made the old lady crack the fuck up.
April 4, 2006, 1:26 p.m. CST
...you should stay out of the ff-ing room, YOU STAY OUT OF THE FF-ING ROOM!!! Therefore it wouldn't, like, work. 'N stuff.

Stephen King wrote a short story called 'Trucks'. If I remember correctly, it was only 5 pages or so and they were able to create a fantastic film called 'Maximum Overdrive'. I personally feel if they can make 'Trucks' into a full feature, they will have no problems doing the same with this film.
April 4, 2006, 4:15 p.m. CST
Just go from one short to another, not explaining anything, just going from one extreme to the next. It would be awesome! They could do "Everything's Eventual" in 3 hours! It could start a new genre.
April 4, 2006, 10:01 p.m. CST
Those of you who havent read the story yet have no say in this. This story is so scary it will rip your throat out of your asshole! Wonder how they're going to do the makeup when John Cusack's character becomes a human candle..oh whoops, SPOILER!!
April 5, 2006, 10:28 a.m. CST
sounds like a bad idea for a movie. Do horror movies just suck so much these days, or what? They just can't seem to sustain any kind of the feeling that a horror movie should have for two hours. I mean, I loved the Ring and thought is was truly scary and suspenseful, but only for about the first hour. Other than that I haven't been feelin anything in the horror genre. I use to love watching Tales From the Crypt, maybe thats the format for a great short story like this.

Hey Cumslerper, your supposed to put SLOILER before you actually spoil it. Now I don't have to watch the movie, thanks dumfuk.
