This is the year of the King. Even though the adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower was a disappointment, it looks as if IT is going to be a nightmare, not to mention we still have Netflix’s Gerald’s Game to look forward to.
We now have the first ever shot from the film, directed by up-and-coming horror icon Mike Flanagan, who was behind Netflix’s Hush, not to mention Ouija: Origin of Evil and Oculus, Before I Wake and Absentia.
It will be premiering at the upcoming Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.
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.
