Gerald’s Game is one of Stephen King’s novels that just doesn’t seem to get much love and that’s a shame because it really is one twisted, mind screw of a story – and I’m glad to see that Netflix has taken a chance and come Sept. 29th will be bringing this odd little tale to their platform.
A trailer showed up today – give it a whirl:
Mike Flanagan directs – and he’s had quite the run of late. His involement alone ratchets up the interest meter. A great cast that includes Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood, Henry Thomas, Carel Struycken, and Kate Siegel doesn’t hurt either.
“When a harmless sex game between a married couple in a remote retreat suddenly becomes a harrowing fight for survival, wife Jessie must confront long-buried demons within her own mind – and possibly lurking in the shadows of her seemingly empty house. Among those she confronts are ghosts from her past and a vicious dog.”
Sept. 29th – that’s the date to check you Netflix account. It should be there waiting for you!
