Netflix's dark horror movie Gerald's Game, based on Stephen King's novel of the same name, caused viewers to "feel nauseous and faint" after watching it. Any adaptation of the 76-year-old writer's books, including It, Pet Cemetery, and Carrie, has turned out to contain many horrifying moments.

In recent years, Netflix has acquired the rights to adapt many King'

novels, as well as to create its own adaptations. Gerald's Game, starring Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood, is one of the films created exclusively for the streaming platform, The Sun reports.

The 2017 film follows a couple as they try to revitalize their marriage by renting a house by the lake. After the husband dies unexpectedly during foreplay, the wife is left handcuffed to the bed frame and has to fight to survive and free herself. Soon, the heroine begins to see hallucinate, facing her own demons.
