With its escalating tragedy, desolate (often macabre) imagery & painfully slow pace, 1922 is somewhat more gruelling than the average King adaptation; mixing elements of generic schlock with a studied psychological approach that feels closer to a European art-film. Jane does well to carry the drama, despite occasionally evoking Ernest P. Worrell, but it's the bold work of director Hiditch &crew that really impresses.
Good movie, albeit a tad too long, with a fine performance from Jane. It might straddle that fine line between drama and horror without much success and the final stretch of the movie feels repetitious. The stand out here is the great soundtrack by Mike Patton. Well worth a watch!
A disturbing source material is turned into a flick that is neat on technical aspects but it's around 20 minutes too long since there's simply no story left to tell - which leads to cheap and generic conclusion. Also, it misses its marks on horror department since Molly Parker's character could've been a new Zelda from "Pet Semetary". Watchable, although it relies too much on a story and too little on an atmosphere.
3.3 Solid production. Images and story line remind me of a graphic novel. The first hour is best (some nods to the Coen´s way of filmmaking). That cow on top of the dry well is a funny highlight. In the end it turns into a Tale from the Crypt.
what a great year for Stephen King's adaptations. It, Gerald's Game, and now comes perhaps even the finest of the three. beautifully dark and tragic. no jump scares here as in It, it's a slow burn that carefully weaves its narrative through an almost fable narrative. a wrongful deed has a relentless punishment. neat little thriller with some nice little Edgar Allen Poe winks
