2017 | DIR. MIKE FLANAGAN | REVIEW BY GLENN COCHRANE.
With the likes of big-screen outings Itand The Dark Tower, TV shows Mr. Mercedes and The Mist, and Netflix features 1922 and Gerald’s Game, 2017 is up there among the biggest years Stephen King has ever had – adaptation wise. Of all those titles, Gerald’s Game is a cut above the rest. King’s 1992 novel was once deemed to be unadaptable, and yet with a focused screenplay and an acute attention to detail it comes to us in a very tidy package: an abundance of thrills, disturbing themes and absolutely terrifying imagery.
