Storyline

Featuring shades of Edgar Allen Poe's ["A Tell-tale Heart" and] "The Black Cat", 1922, with a Bonny and Clyde sub-plot, based on the Stephen King novella of the same name, centers on simple but proud farmer, Wilfred James, who, with the reluctant help of his teenage son, murders his wife to gain ownership of her inherited land. Shortly after, however, strange and supernatural occurrences begin to plague both James and his farm. Is it just simple bad luck, or is it the work of something much more sinister? Written by Jake Logsdon

Goofs

The flag of the USA in 1922 was the 48 star one, in oeration from July 4, 1912 - July 3, 1959. This had 6 rows of 8 stars in a row, all in line with each other. The flags on the hotel in open sequence had flags that resemble later 49 or 50 star/state flags with offset stars. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Wilfred James: [writing] To whom it may concern. My name is Wilfred Leland James, and this is my confession. The issue that led to my crime and damnation was 100 acres of good land in Hemingford Home, Nebraska, willed to my wife, Arlette Christina Winters James, following the death of her father. It was much my intention to add her 100 to our 80-acre freehold farm, as it was to someday pass it all on to my boy, Henry Freeman James, and to his thereafter.

"1922" loses steam in the second half
23 April 2019 | by javan23See all my reviews

Amazing performance by Thomas Jane and beautiful cinematography make this a perfect example of style over substance. The second half of the film lost a lot of its grip on me. The story is harrowing but feels underwhemling. Works better as a novella and perhaps should have been made into an 80 minute movie. Still worth a viewing.
