10 Non-Rated R Films That Dropped The F Bomb To Great Use
The Drop: "It's an evil f***ing room." Not a lot of actors can drop the F bomb better than Samuel L. Jackson. An actor who was practically born to use the word to its fullest extent, Jackson delivers its usage in this psychological horror film about a man (played by John Cusack) who looks to controvert the suspicion of paranormal events inside room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel, only to succumb to its terror and fall into madness. While checking in, he asks for the key from the hotel owner, as played by Sammy Jackson. When Enslin (Cusack's character) asks of what's behind the room's strange occurrences, Jackson responds in the way only he can. Horror films that use the F bomb are no surprise in a simple manner, but what makes 1408's use of it so special is Jackson's simple way of describing the room. If anyone has seen the film, you'll immediately agree with him in his statement.
