Netflix has unveiled the trailer for 1922, a crime-drama horror pic based on the 131-page novella by King. Thomas Jane plays Wilfred James, a man who kills his wife (Molly Parker) and soon becomes convinced that he is being haunted by her ghost.
This atmospheric, creepy-looking picture was written and directed by Aussie helmer Zak Hilditch, whose previous feature was the solid, underseen end-of-the-world drama These Final Hours. It’s a good trailer, showing off what looks like a strong picture with Jane in quite the moody role. Fingers crossed.
1922, also starring Dylan Schmid, Kaitlyn Bernard, Brian d’Arcy James, and Neal McDonough, will hit Netflix on October 20.
Official synopsis for 1922:
1922 is based on Stephen King’s 131-page story telling of a man’s confession of his wife’s murder. The tale is told from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.
