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

Trivia

There are several tropes and connections to other Stephen King stories. Hordes of rats are connected to another short story named The Graveyard Shift. The well connects to the novel Dolores Claiborne. Nebraska and the cornfields are both associated with The Stand and Children of the Corn. A man being cursed for his immoral actions is similar to The Green Mile. See more »

Goofs

The leather gear worn by the sheriff during the trip to the farm, particularly his holster, cartridge drop boxes and night stick ring are too modern in design for 1922. 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.

Just Barely Made it to the End.
19 January 2018 | by jon-stokes21-539-17875See all my reviews

1922 is one of those movies you think or hope is going to pick up but never does. At some points it appeared to be building up some momentum but never delivers. At several points during the movie II nearly turned it off but it seemed to hold my attention just enough that I was able to make it to the end

I'm sure many will enjoy this film, it's very different and the Thomas Jane's acting and portrayal of the difficult role of Wilfred James was nothing short of exceptional. But at the end of the day I beleive far more people will find this movie slow and hard to sit through.
