Stephen King’s titles have found their way into multiple movies and TV series over the past few years and Gerald’s Game is possibly the shining light among them. Relying on practical effects, the movie is particularly gory and features arguably Oscar-worthy performances from Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood.
