However, the tenacious Abbott family is still standing strong even though it has now been a year since the first reports of the terrifying beasts.

This movie is one of the best movies for people who like zombie movies. Brad Pitt played the role very beautifully and this movie surely won the hearts of the audience.


Gerald’s Game (2017)

Women tied to bed while dead husband on him

IMDb – 6.5

Genre – Horror | Drama | Thriller

Wife Jessie must face long-buried demons in her psyche, as well as those who may be hiding in the shadows of her ostensibly empty home when a game between a married couple in a lonely retreat abruptly turns into a terrifying battle for survival. The movie starts with a couple feeling they have lost their spark and so Gerald (husband) organizes a trip while thinking of a solution. Everything starts to go wrong when Gerald dies during foreplay leaving Jessie handcuffed to the bed. Now Jessie soon realizes she is in a life-or-death situation with no one except her hallucination and Gerald.

With his streak of successful horror films, Flanagan has shown himself to be one heck of an idea man, and making Gerald’s Game work is his most remarkable achievement yet. This King adaptation is superb. It’s a great psychological horror film that explores difficult subjects without pandering or taking advantage. It is a heartfelt work that has its priorities straight; it rejects toxic masculinity, the silence that is oppressive, and abusive cycles. It’s a clear embrace of female power and is equally moving and intensely thrilling.
