A farmer writes a confession letter admitting to the killing of his wife years prior. Her death starts a chain reaction that causes the downward spiral of his life.
My husband and I are in agreement that the majority of Netflix’s Original movies are topnotch and definitely worth watching. And 1922 is no exception.
While my husband watched the trailer before we watched it, I had only read the short synopsis on Netflix. It was enough to make me want to put the flick into our adult queue.
Although the movie had to lay down some background in order to make everything come together nicely in the end, it wasn’t too drab like some movies can make it. It gives you enough of a backstory that you could follow along very easily.
I liked how the movie felt like a Stephen King movie. There is a certain way that he writes, and it came through clearly.
The ending was a typical Stephen King ending, but I feel like the important questions were answered. The movie leaves you hanging a little bit but not enough to be a put off.
I haven’t read Stephen King’s 1922 novella, however, I am very pleased with how this movie turned out. It was intriguing and captivating enough that it kept my attention throughout the whole thing. Makes me want to read the book now!
Have you watch this movie or read the book? Do you feel like Netflix did a good job of turning the book into a movie? What did you like or hate about it?
