Gerald’s Game

Jessie Burlingame (Carla Gugino) lets her husband (Bruce Greenwood) handcuff her to the bedpost in an isolated cabin as part of a sex game, but she soon finds herself in real danger. A thriller that plays out in similar vein to the directorā€™s Hush (2016) that was also set in an isolated house in the countryside where itā€™s hard to escape danger. This story largely takes place in a bedroom where the trapped lead begins to hear voices, experience hallucinations and must deal with horrors of her pastā€¦ as well as a hungry dog. A claustrophobic and therapeutic chamber play with many nods to familiar Stephen King ingredients, very well performed by the two leads.

2017-U.S. 103 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed and edited byĀ Mike Flanagan. Novel: Stephen King. Cast: Carla Gugino (Jessie Burlingame), Bruce Greenwood (Gerald Burlingame), Carel Struycken (Moonlight Man), Henry Thomas, Chiara Aurelia.

Trivia: First shown at the Fantastic Fest film festival, then released on Netflix.
