Its Episode 104! Gareth and Miriam (fellow Shabbos Rollers quizzers at the Bigger Boat Film Quiz) return for Gareth’s choice, Gerald’s Game. Gerald’s Game is a 2017 Netflix film by Mike Flanagan based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. It stars Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood. A weekend away to spice up the marriage between Jessie and Gerald takes an unexpected and unfortunate turn when Gerald has a heart attack and dies, with Jessie handcuffed to the bed. This happens early on and the rest of the film is focused on whether Jessie will find the mental and physical strength to escape or will she die handcuffed to the bed. No spoilers here but let’s say the outcome is not for the faint-hearted or anyone really, it will take a certain strength to make it through.  

Scores

Overall Gerald’s Game scored quite high from everyone apart from Miriam and takes a bit of a hit in the repeat viewing (when you’ve watched it you’ll know why!) but scores a very respectable 3.52 overall.
