Stephen King is one of the masters of horror in the literary industry, producing his fair share of scary stories. However, most of these books don’t rely on supernatural elements, but rather haunt the readers through mind games and psychological trauma. While “It” is getting plenty of praise for its creepy clown killer, Netflix has just released a new trailer for their adaptation of King's novel, “Gerald’s game.” Sexual tension becomes dangerous as a wife finds herself struggling to escape her bedroom following a horrific turn of events.

A threatening kink

Stephen King is no stranger when it comes to adaptations, and now another one of his famous books is getting a TV series.

According to Bloody Disgusting, the director of “Hush,” “Oculus,” and “Ouija: Origin of Evil” will be turning “Gerald’s Game” into a series. Based on the 1992 book, this series follows actress Carla Gugino who will be portraying protagonist Jessie Burlingame, a woman who accidentally kills her husband after being handcuffed to a bed. She soon finds herself trapped and begins to lose hope of ever escaping. The worst part is that she begins to slowly slip into insanity as the voices in her head begin manifesting into terrifying visions.

The plot itself shares some similarities to King’s “Misery,” yet the main antagonist here is the woman’s fears. It’s a unique take on the survival genre that places the danger right inside your bedroom. King has already reacted to the trailer on Twitter, stating that it’s “gonna freak you out.” “Gerald’s Game” will is slated to release this September 29 on Netflix.

‘It’ sequel planned

In other news, King’s other novel has just gotten a film adaptation. “It” has won over fans and critics alike with the story of a mysterious clown terrorizing a group of children. Variety reports that a sequel is already planned, with the current film acting as the first chapter. The second installment should follow the timeline in the book and will see all the children as adults after the events of the first movie.

Director Andy Muschietti claimed that he doesn’t think of the second film as a sequel, but rather the second half of a single story. Similarly, the “It” book never had a sequel, but merely told the story in two perspectives. The film is slated to release on September 8 with no official release date for the second movie. You can follow the original stories for both “Gerald’s Game” and “It” by reading the books.
