1408 is based on a short story from the Stephen King book Blood and Smoke, which was published on November 22nd, the anniversary of the JFK assassination.
Blood and Smoke…Blood spewed from Kennedy’s head while Smoke emitted from the gun.
The film was released in 2007.
The 99th Prime number is 523
JFK‘s full name has Reverse gematria of 334, the Reverse of 433.
In Ordinal, John Fitzgerald Kennedy sums to 233. This number connects to 13, as does the Reverse value of Stephen King.
233 is the 13th Fibonacci number
169 is 13×13
JFK was assassinated in Dallas.
Write-ups on the movie explain that 1408 was chosen because 1+4+0+8 = 13, the most notorious of all unlucky numbers. Perhaps this is part of why actor John Cusack was selected to play the protagonist.
Cusack’s wife in the film is played by Mary McCormack, whose M.M. initials are 13–13.
Blood and Smoke has the same “B and S” graphemes as Skull and Bones.
Blood and Smoke and Skull & Bones both sum to 130.
Blood and Smoke was published in the year ’99.
Cusack’s co-star is Samuel L. Jackson, who plays the haunted hotel’s manager.
“Ritual Sacrifice” Code
The movie came out on 22/6, a date with Primary numerology of 55:
The Ritual sacrifice code is strong with JFK‘s name.
There’s actually deeper meaning to the number 1408. It’s important to keep in mind that 0‘s are customarily ignored in the results when observing numerology.
This is a film about mysterious deaths occurring in a particular hotel room, number 1408. In Latin gematria, 148 is gematria shared by Ritual sacrifice and the highly-significant Thirty-three.
When measuring from King’s birthday to Cusack’s, we find the same four digits in 1408.
Cusack plays the main character, whose name is Mike Enslin. In Ordinal, these names match both Death and Sacrifice.
9/11 and The Number 23
John Cusack has Primary birth numerology of 119:
The president at the time of the film’s release was George W. Bush, who was also in office for the 9/11 attacks. Bush, like his father, was a member of the Skull and Bones society at Yale University.
119 × 119 = 14161
14161 days = 2023 weeks
Cusack’s full name John Paul Cusack sums to 223.
Earlier in 2007 on February 23rd, or 2/23, another occultic film about numerology called The Number 23 was released. This film teaches the concept of gematria.
The 223rd Prime number is 1409
1409 is one off from 1408
The Skull and Bones number is 322, and if you multiply 3×22, you get 66.
Cusack was born in the year ’66:
Sixty-six has Standard gematria of 2318.
Those are the same digits in 1832, the year Skull and Bones was founded:
The postcard Cusack’s character receives that sends him on his journey is Don’t Enter 1408:
211 helps explain how 66 is highly-connected to 666.
Cusack’s character in the film is Mike Enslin. He visits New York and stays at a haunted hotel called The Dolphin.
666 is the 36th Triangular number
JFK was killed on the 326th day of the year, which is the same date that Blood and Smoke was published:
Samuel L. Jackson
666 + 666 = 1332
Six six six and Triple sixes both sum to 156 in Ordinal.
The 156th Prime number is 911
I’m sure there’s plenty more to unpack with this movie but I’ll leave you with this. In 2012, Canadian Space Network, whose logo was a triangle (Illuminati?), aired an alternate ending of the film.
661 is the 121st Prime number
