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.“
September 29th. Netflix. And if I may wax poetic, “Be there if you dare.” pic.twitter.com/bKzFdZPBmT
