Here I am, reviewing Halloween potentials so you can read and watch only the best!
Which means, you may want to give this one a pass. It’s not bad, but it’s very slow.
1922 (Release Date: October 20, 2017)
A simple yet proud farmer in the year 1922 conspires to murder his wife for financial gain, convincing his teenage son to participate.
Director: Zak Hilditch
Rating/ Runtime: TV-MA 1hr 42 min
Here we have another King adaptation for Netflix. Unlike Gerald’s Game (Read Review), which was bold and enthralling, 1922 is a slow burn. It is a great story and a terrific example of Karma at its best, I just found it incredibly slow.
The cast is great and Thomas Jane who also starred in The Mist (the movie not that horrible excuse for a TV series), does an admirable job depicting an embittered farmer. A man who perhaps thought he was doing what was best for himself and his son, commits an atrocious act and pays for it tenfold.
There are creepy parts, gruesome parts, and eye-wateringly dull parts. As such, I can best describe this as an okay film. Okay for another time, not when you’re looking for true scares in the week leading up to Halloween.
Rating… C+ or 3 Rats out of 5 😉
Yes rats! If you have or do watch the movie, you know what I’m talking about.
