Fresh off the steaming hem of Pennywise’s pantsuit, we have a brand new Stephen King Property getting the old adaptation treatment. 1922, based on the novella of the same name, is coming to Netflix; and we’ve got the trailer to prove it! The grungy new film will join Gerald’s Game (dropping on Netflix later this month), and be the second Stephen King property hitting Netflix this fall.

1922 is based on Stephen King’s 131-page story of a man’s confession to his wife’s murder. The tale is told from 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. It’s like a Stephen King version of Edgar Allen Poe’s The Tell-tale Heart, essentially.

 

Thomas Jane (The Mist, Dreamcatcher) stars as Wilfred James. He is joined by Molly Parker (DeadwoodHouse of Cards) as Arlette James, Dylan Schmid (Once Upon a TimeHorns) as Henry James, Kaitlyn Bernard (R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour, The Healer) as Shannon Cotterie, Brian d’Arcy James (SpotlightSmash) as Sheriff Jones, and Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First AvengerLegends of Tomorrow) as Harlan Cotterie.
