    Gerald's Game, based on the novel by Stephen King and directed by Mike Flanagan (Oculus and Ouija: Origin of Evil, so there lies my interest), is for the most part a very efficient thriller about a woman left handcuffed to a bed when her sex-game-playing husband dies from a heart attack on top of her. Her mind snaps, and her struggle to survive is hampered by her own past, with her father and her husband, characters acting as fragments of her mind and livening up what would normally be a very static set-up. There's the horror of the situation, and then there's the horror within, a lifetime of repression and insecurity. It's quite well done, but for the terrible 10-minute, tacked-on epilogue that actually hurts the narrative with its "revelations". It would be better to stop watching when it looks over and fades to black. If you get to the bit where someone is writing a letter, you've gone too far. Switch off. 3 years 11 months ago
