A storm is brewing in the trailer for Netflix’s 1922, their next adaptation of Stephen King’s novella that follows the events after a man, played by Thomas Jane, kills his wife.
The tale is told from the perspective of Wilfred James (Jane), the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette (Molly Parker), with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.
Streaming on Netflix October 20th, 1922 also stars Dylan Schmid, Kaitlyn Bernard, Brian D’Arcy James and Neal McDonough.
1922 was directed by Zak Hilditch (These Final Hours), who also adapted the novella. Ross M. Dinerstein produced.
Netflix will also release Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of Gerald’s Game (September 29), which I reviewed earlier this week explaining that it “hits Misery levels of cringe-worthy tension.”
