Gerald's Game

Never far from the moviegoing consciousness given how many of his stories are turned into films, we have a Stephen King adaptation turning up at the cinema this weekend via It. But another King novel is headed to Netflix, as the first trailer for Gerald's Game confirms.

Directed by Oculus and Ouija: Origin Of Evil's Mike Flanagan from a script he wrote with Jeff Howard, the story finds Gerald (Bruce Greenwood) and Jessie Burlingame (Carla Gugino) heading to their summer home for a romantic interlude. After being handcuffed to her bedposts, Jessie tires of her husband’s games, until things take an unexpectedly tragic turn. Still handcuffed, she is trapped and alone. Painful memories from her childhood bedevil her. Her only company is a hungry stray dog and the voices that populate her mind. As night comes, she is unsure whether it is her imagination or if she has another companion: someone watching her from the corner of her dark bedroom...

We'd say Fifty Shades Of Grey has a lot to answer for, but this one came out in book form back in 1992. The film will hit Netflix on 29 September.
