Been really excited for Mike Flanagan’a film adaptation. Can’t wait to see this one!
Are you as excited for the Gerald’s Game movie as I am? I’m even more thrilled that Mike Flanagan will be sitting in the director’s chair. Flanagan directed Oculus, which was an amazing mind-bender of a horror film so I’m eager to see how the adaptation from book to film plays out.
Check out his Fangoria interview at the link below…
I wasn’t expecting to like this movie as much as I did. I think I was initially biased about the film because WWE Studios was attached to the production team, but Oculus turned out to be a great psychological horror story. I’m really impressed at how writers Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard were able to tie in this story linking the past and present in a way that didn’t annoy or confuse. It’s a story that’s well played out and is very unpredictable. When I thought the film was going to head in one direction, it turned out to present something completely unexpected.
Oculus reminds me of Stephen King’s 1408 were we have a supernatural/ haunted object or location that’s able to disorient and confuse it’s victims until they meet an unfortunate fate. Oh, and the ending was perfect. I just finished watching the movie and liked it so much that I jumped right into this review. Do yourself a favor and put Oculus on your list of horror films you must see. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Five Howls out of five 😉
