The latest adaptation of Stephen King‘s IT is in theaters this week, and it’s getting rave reviews and looks like it’s going to be a box office hit as well. But that’s not the only King adaptation coming this month. Netflix has a movie based on the author’s Gerald’s Game coming soon, and they’ve released a first trailer for it.
The movie comes from Oculus, Hush, Absentia, and Ouija: Origin of Evil director Mike Flanagan, and it stars Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood, Henry Thomas, and Kate Siegel.

Once again, Jessie Burlingame has been talked into submitting to her husband Geraldâ€™s kinky sex gamesâ€”something that sheâ€™s frankly had enough of, and they never held much charm for her to begin with. So much for a â€œromantic getawayâ€ at their secluded summer home. After Jessie is handcuffed to the bedpostsâ€”and Gerald crosses a line with his wifeâ€”the day ends with deadly consequences. Now Jessie is utterly trapped in an isolated lakeside house that has become her prisonâ€”and comes face-to-face with her deepest, darkest fears and memories. Her only company is that of the various voices filling her mindâ€¦as well as the shadows of nightfall that may conceal an imagined or very real threat right there with herâ€¦
Flanagan also has another horror project on its way to Netflix in the future, a series adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House, which also stars Gugino, Thomas, and Siegel.
Gerald’s Game is set to arrive on Netflix on September 29th.
While trying to spice up their marriage in their remote lake house, Jessie must fight to survive when her husband dies unexpectedly, leaving her handcuffed to their bed frame.
