People are safe from ghouls and ghosts and the living dead in the daylight. And they're usually safe from them at night, if they're with others. But a person alone in the dark... women alone in the dark are like open doors, Jessie, and if they scream for help, who knows what might answer.

This is a step up from your usual horror NetFlix productions and especially from other Stephen King translations. I mean it was a bomb! And in the good way.
So the movie itself has that 127 Hours touch, but far, far better than expected. And without spoiling it to you, I have to say Gerald's Game makes the most of everything. Not one detail is left untouched, the usage of the entire environment, memories makes for a terrific viewing experience.
You'll be fed tension, scares, confusion, hope and denial, a beautiful game indeed that you just have to be part of. And let me say one more thing, the ending, that was just brilliant. The cherry on the cake. The cold beer after a long hard day. Simply put: RECOMMENDED!
