Mike Flanagan’s ‘Gerald’s Game’ Gets Netflix Premiere Date

Many of you guys have been asking us when you’ll be able to see Ouija: Origin of Evil and Hush director Mike Flanagan’s Stephen King adaptation Gerald’s Game, and we’ve been wondering the same thing right along with you. Today brings a premiere date!

The Netflix film will arrive on the streaming service Friday, September 29.

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.”

Here’s what King recently tweeted after seeing a rough cut:

“Horrifying, hypnotic, terrific. It’s gonna freak you out.“

Flanagan and Jeff Howard adapted the novel.

The cast includes Carla Gugino, Henry Thomas, Bruce Greenwood, and Kate Siegel.

    I’ve wanted this to be a movie since I read it. Can’t wait to see how they did this! With Carla too, I can dig it!

    I know this is just a fantasy of mine, but it would be really cool to have Kathy Bates reprise her role as Dolores Claiborne for this one for us fans.

      I hear what you’re saying J, apparently it’s supposed to start picking up in pace in the next episode. So I’m going to give it 2-3 more episodes and if nothing than good bye. I liked episode one, but two went in the opposite direction I was expecting.

      • J Jett

        that’s good to hear/read Necro! ok, i will give it 1 or 2 more eps! thanx for the info. 🙂

    I’ve loved Carla Gugino’s boobs since I was 16. I’m not 20 years older and still love them.

        I’m now 36 is what I mean. As a 16 year old male I’m sure I pulled my pecker to her boobs more than 20 times. I might again some day.

          Did she ever have any nude scenes in any of her movies? “Enquiring minds want to know.

          • jackstark211

            She is topless in the first Sin City. You also get a nice look at her ass.

    • david

      I hear you. There’s just something about her. She’s beautiful.

  • Any information about foreign territories such as UK / Francec / Germany and other languages?

    Flanagan is one of the only directors working in horror right now I would have entrusted this material to. Plus, the fact that it’s gone straight to Netflix let’s me know they probably didn’t have to soften the blow of this story worrying about the rating and marketability. I have high hopes for it.
