1922 is based on Stephen King's 131-page story telling of a man's confession of his wife's murder. The tale is told from from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story's unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.

Critic Reviews for 1922

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (6)

[1922] is a credible addition to a filmography where practically every thought the writer commits to paper is, seemingly, deemed fit for the screen.

Top Critic

The familiar case of a short story stretched too thin in a feature film.

October 20, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The film is not lurid in its scares, and instead depicts its protagonist's suffering mostly as a slow rot.

September 26, 2017 | Full Review…

It doesn't take any shocking new twists, but musters just enough fresh polish to a classic scenario to make it worth one more ride.

Too often actors playing rural roles mistake "slow" for "stupid," but Jane pinpoints Wilfred's mental acuity without rushing through reactions that feel anachronistic or phony.

September 24, 2017 | Full Review…

A largely satisfying adaptation of Stephen King's novella about unappeasable guilt triggered by the mortal sin of murder.

Audience Reviews for 1922

Slow burning horror film based on a Stephen King story, that should have your attention, especially in 2017. The comeback trail is here and hopefully we get many more films, even ones that were handed to poor filmmakers. This movie hangs performance and story right in the centre before adding the extra genre. The atmosphere is carefully orchestrated and it becomes unsettling as the film draws to its bitter conclusion. I only wish they left the vague ending the short story did, this film feels open and shut for the horror genre. That ending in the book would have you questioning everything you had seen before. 30-10-2017.
