Netflix presents the spine-tingling poster to their riveting psychological drama, Gerald’s Game, starring Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood. Based on the terrifying bestseller by critically acclaimed Stephen King, get ready for a twisted game of seduction between husband and wife.
As we previously mentioned, the upcoming Netflix drama is based on the novel by Stephen King. Jessie (Gugino) and Gerald (Greenwood) are trying to spice up their humdrum marriage. Away in their remote lake house, Jessie must fight for survival when her husband dies unexpectedly. At the time of his death, Gerald left his wife handcuffed to their bed frame.
Check out our 5 thoughts on the official trailer for Gerald’s Game:
5) Stephen King Has Faith!
First there was The Dark Tower, then It, and now Gerald’s Game will make its big screen debut at Fantastic Fest. It makes sense the bestselling author would be marketing the original Netflix flick on his official Twitter page, stating, “And if I may wax poetic, “Be there if you dare.”
4) It’s Still 50 Shades of Horrifying!
It’s 50 Shades Darker indeed! Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) relives his kinky fantasies with his true love, Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) in 50 Shades Freed. Jessie (Gugino) and Gerald (Greenwood) may be living out those fetish fantasies but neither appear to be having any fun!
3) Time To Play The Game!

The tagline says, “Some Games You Play. Some You Survive.” Gerald’s Game is definitely playing up the home invasion theme but with a twist. The terror comes from within, especially from the bedroom, as estranged husband and wife lie together.
2) Where’s The Space Cowboy?
If you’ve read the book, then you know Jessie will have to face-off against The Space Cowboy. Is he a figment of her imagination? Or was she really visited by the notorious serial killer? Does this adaptation even have an antagonist?
Writer/director Mike Flanagan is also responsible for the home invasion thriller, Hush, which I truly recommend watching. The Netflix original has a fantastic performance by co-writer/actress Kate Siegel and John Gallagher Jr. (10 Cloverfield Lane) creepy as hell.
Gerald’s Game premieres on Netflix on September 29th, 2017.
