Trailer: Netflix serves up more Stephen King horror with 1922
Staff Reporter | On 23, Sep 2017
With the IT movie breaking box office records, Mike Flanagan about to premiere Gerald’s Game on Netflix and Stranger Things returning to our screens, it’s safe to say that Stephen King is having something a moment. Now, Netflix is delving back into the author’s archive of horrors for a new original movie: 1922.
“I believe there’s another man inside every man,” muses Wilfred James, a husband to a murdered wife and a father to a son in Nebraska. The bad news? He’s the one who murdered here. King’s novella, which is told from the perspective of James, sees him admit to killing his wife in the titular year, but after he buries her body, his life begins to unravel and he becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.
Thomas Jane (who can currently be seen in Netflix’s The Expanse) stars as the disturbing protagonist of our tale, with the cast including Molly Parker, Dylan Schmid and Neal McDonough. Written and Directed by: Zak Hilditch, 1922 premieres on Friday 20th October.
Here’s the trailer – or for more on what’s coming soon to Netflix UK in October, click here.
1922 is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
