‘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 Scr888 slot casino bonus casino online aams casino automatenspiele-slots kostenlos unnerving for a film of its caliber, as Igt double diamond slot machine manual no deposit bonus instant play its themes in a way no horror movie has tried.
