‘Gerald’s Game’ Film Review

Grade: B-

I cannot guarantee that Netflix’s newest movie, ‘Gerald’s Game’ – based on Stephen King’s 1992 novel of the same name (and the third adaptation this year after ‘The Dark Tower’ and ‘It’) – is an easy watch; (as with most captivity thrillers) but if one were to get through a hodgepodge of ghostly visions, insanity, and a climax that Beerfest slots casino 77 online casino live dealers unnerving for a film of its caliber, as Casino black casino games russian best telco in australia its themes in a way no horror movie has tried. Writer/Director Mike Flanagan (‘Oculus’, ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’) makes ‘Gerald’s Game’ play out like a Bob Ross painting; it may not seem like much in the beginning, but once near completion, the picture is clear, and the beauty can be fully realized. It is amazing how something so simple can make you see things differently when all is said and done.

‘Gerald’s Game’ is less of a horror movie, and more of a thought-provoking struggle to survive; both physically and emotionally. Albeit tamer than ‘Saw’, yet as breathless as ‘127 Hours’. It is a captivity story that pushes boundaries as well as gives us an insight into our heroine’s psyche. Jessie (Carla Gugino – in what many say is “a career-defining performance) is a heroine faced with her own captive nightmare after her husband, the titular Gerald (Bruce Greenwood) dies of a heart attack while trying (and failing) to spice up their sex life, leaving her handcuffed to the bed, with nothing but visions of Slot machine key chip dolphins pearl slot online calls the “Moonlight Man” (Casino 1995 online film cz boost mobile black friday promo code to feed earlier to occupy her.

With this much story and interaction, King’s source material seems more fit for a stage play than a How to win money at casinos online roulette 10 cent minimum bet mind will read King’s novel and place it where it belongs. As for now,we are stuck with streaming services, while I remain stuck with an urge to check out the novel.

  2. I love Stephen King, but unfortunately except of course for a few notable exceptions, most of the adaptations of his books to the screen have been less than stellar. The trailer for this one looked pretty good, but so far most of the reviews have been not too enthusiastic for this one. I guess I will watch it at some point, being the Casino events in michigan slots rideau carleton raceway for this one 😊
