Stephen King Just Shared This Striking ‘Gerald’s Game’ Poster

Stephen King wants fans to get cozy with the official poster for Netflix’s Gerald’s Game, which hails from Oculus, Ouija: Origin of Evil and Hush director Mike Flanagan.

In the film, based on King’s 1992 novel, “A woman accidentally kills her husband after being handcuffed to a bed, leaving her unable to free herself. As time passes and she realizes that rescue is an all but hopeless thought, she begins to slip into insanity, the voices in her head manifesting into visions.”

Netflix recently released the trailer for the film arriving on the streaming service Friday, September 29. It boasts a potent performance by Carla Gugino, who finds herself trapped in a bed while her husband lay dead on the ground beneath her feet. It’s got a Misery-vibe, although the antagonist in this adaptation is the woman’s hallucinations.

Here’s what King tweeted after seeing a rough cut: “Horrifying, hypnotic, terrific. It’s gonna freak you out.“

    this movie looks asinine. the book was terrible, one of his worst from a very bad period.

    • What makes the book terrible?

        well, for me at least, this was where mr. king started trying out his ‘different voices in the head’ points of view with several different voices/characters chiming in to guide the main character through different scenes. maybe it’s because i read this right before or right after rose madder & dolores claiborne (two king books i despise) but i sort of lump them all in together into his middling period of not really knowing what the fuck he was doing. all this coming off it/tommyknockers, it felt like a real letdown- to me of course. he really only hit his stride again with bag of bones.

        • OMG I LOVE Dolores Claiborne. The book and the movie are so good! I also just read Gerald’s Game and while it’s not one of my favorites, it does have two or three of the most terrifying scenes I’ve ever read. That shit stuck with me long after I finished the book. #YoureJustMoonlight
