Insanely Intense Trailer For Netflix's Adaptation of Stephen King's GERALD'S GAME with Carla Gugino
"Breaking free will require more than keeping her sanity."
The first trailer for Netflix's film adaptation of Stephen King's Gerald's Game has been released and this looks like a great movie! The film was directed by Mike Flanagan (Ouija: Origin of Evil, Hush, Oculus) and it stars Carla Gugino (The Space Between Us, San Andreas, Watchmen) and Bruce Greenwood (The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Star Trek).
This is such a crazy and intense story and you get a taste of that intensity in this trailer. It looks like the team who worked on bringing this story to life did an amazing job.
The story is a suspense psychological thriller in which Gugino plays a woman who is left handcuffed to a bed in an isolated cabin after her husband dies abruptly during sex play. As she is trapped alone and trying to escape, "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."
What a nightmarish situation that would be! When previously talking about the movie, Gugino said:
“It's one of the most fulfilling things I've done. I love this woman… you're dealing with something that has elements of horror, but also is really more of a thriller, in the vain of a Misery. And she is also dealing with this childhood sexual trauma with her father, and those are all tricky tones to find together.”
The movie also stars Henry Thomas (E.T. The Extraterrestrial), Carel Struycken (Twin Peaks) Chiara Aurelia (Big Sky) and Kate Siegel (Hush). Gerald's Game is set to premiere on Netflix on September 29th.
