21. 1922 (movie)
Premiere date: Oct. 27, 2017
What 1922 is about: Adapted from a short story by Stephen King,1922 follows Wilfred James, a man who murders his wife over a rather silly dispute. After dumping her body in a well and watching rats eat her body, Wilfred tries to move on with his life, but the ghost of his wife (and all the rats) won’t be making that possible.
Why you need to watch this: I am definitely not alone when I say that when the name Stephen King is attached to anything, we immediately jump on it. Whether it’s a movie or TV series, we feel as if we have to watch it immediately. King loves mystery and shocking twists, so we need to beat the crowd to spoilers and see it first for ourselves.
With 1922 premiering on a streaming service, it gives us a bigger rush to want to see it since we can play it from any device as long as we have a Netflix account! So when 1922 dropped, we couldn’t wait to see it. Does it deliver? Yes! If you somehow missed this movie when it premiered, you need to watch it before you let more time pass by.
The psychological thriller haunts in a different way than other movies in the genre. All the horror comes from the mind and point of view of Wilfred. If his psyche is being messed with, so is the viewers. It has its flaws, but they don’t keep the movie from being enjoyable and keeping viewers on the edge of their seats.
