Gerald's Game
« on: January 27, 2020, 02:47:14 am »
Geeez, anyone seen this?  They pulled it off pretty well from a Stephen King book.  Some disturbing scenes.  Bizarre psyche-horror-thriller, love it or hate it I'm sure.

Wow,  I’ll have to check it out.  I barely remember the book,  it’s been so long,  but I recall the premise and the handcuff...err... escape is still etched in my mind all these years later. Come to think of it, I don’t know if I want to see that brought to visual life.  🤢

You gotta see it, I think I read somewhere it was the hardest movie to make from a SK book(?).  I never read it though.  It's up on Netflix still, lmk your thoughts if you get to see it.

I'll check it out this week, if I can get a free moment and am ready for my skin to crawl.  ;)

Ok.  And she was wearing a very nice slip at least ;)

Also, not sure if you're a horror fan but while you're on there check out The Ritual as well, eeeeek!

Just checked out the trailer... yikes, I'm still recovering from the general creepiness of MidSommar.  I don't know if I'll ever be able to think of Scandinavian countries the same way after both of these.  Also, a movie starring only men?! I'll have to stomach it and look forward to bad endings for all of them.  Sorry guys!

IKR, only men?  <I don't understand>??  But well I got over it pretty fast with the storyline and all :)

lol, it didn't mean that much being Brit myself but yeah it's definitely not Hollywood style which was a bonus.  I watched it very late at night and it kinda had me in a few scenes.  Ugh.
