2017 could certainly be seen as the start of a new Stephen King renaissance. And, flying under the radar of this phenomenon, was Gerald’s Game, a Netflix original adaptation of King’s 1992 novel of the same title.
So, why did it take 25 years for Gerald’s Game to make it to the screen? Well, the story presents an interesting challenge in adaptation — one that makes the film all the more impressive. Without giving too much away, the story mostly takes place in one room, where a woman is handcuffed to a bed beside her dead husband.
As a series of visions confront her with her inner demons, the tension ratchets up to an almost unbearable degree. It’s all driven by a powerhouse performance from Carla Gugino, with director Mike Flanagan demonstrating such a skillful hand that he was placed at the helm of Doctor Sleep soon after.
