[Review] Gerald’s Game (Netflix, 2017) – by Dave Dreher

Dave Dreher often reveals his love for Stephen King books and movies on Horror News Radio. The summer/fall of 2017 is experiencing a resurgence of terrific material from the legendary and prolific writer in cinematic form. Dave tackles the Netflix Original film from HNR favorite Mike Flannigan, Gerald’s Game (2017) which features Carla Gugino (giving the performance of her career), Bruce Greenwood, and Henry Thomas. It is the book that seemed to be unfilmable, however, Netflix and Mike Flannigan seem to have done the impossible – and seem to have done it with an extraordinary amount of style, suspense, and success. Dave not only reviews the film but declares Gerald’s Game the best horror film of 2017. Far out!
