Scene in kinky Netflix Stephen King movie making people pass out

Warning: Article contains some spoilers about what happens in the movie Gerald's Game.


Attitudes towards kinky sex in movies have totally changed (like, hellllooooooo Fifty Shades of Grey).

So, there's nothing too crazy about the idea of the new Stephen King adaptation movie which is about a woman getting handcuffed to a bed.

It's called Gerald's Game and it's the Netflix adaptation of another of the author's books. In case you don't know - Stephen King is the one who wrote the creepy af book "IT" that has recently been turned into a movie. 

Gerald's Game is about a couple who head out to a remote part of New England in search of relaxation, recuperation and kinky fun times. Gerald decides to handcuff his wife, Jessie, to the bed with two sets of handcuffs.

Here's the trailer btw:

After the handcuffing is all done, Gerald takes some Viagra and then proceeds to have a heart attack and fall on top of his wife. 

His wife is then totally stuck and stuff goes down like a stray dog starting to eat Gerald's corpse. Nope, that's not even the scene that's grossing people out.

Jessie eventually ends up reaching for a glass, smashes it and rams the largest shard of glass into the shelf so it's propped up for her to use. She then runs her hand across it, using it almost like a saw. She proceeds to slice off her skin so it's easy to slide her hand out of the cuff.

Yes, slice off her skin.

When she's done enough she slips it through the handcuff, which peels back the skin like a glove, revealing the bones and tendons. It's really, really not for the faint hearted.

So yeah, that stuff is noooooooooooot easy to watch. And apparently it's not easy to read either.

The film's director, Mike Flanagan said that he actually had to refrain from reading bits of the book.

"When I was reading [Gerald's Game] for the first time, I had to put the book down. It turned my stomach just reading it. Visually, I don't think we even took it as far as he took it in the book. I think the hand/glove came just about completely off," he told Slash Film.
