With all the accolades IT: Chapter One and Gerald’s Game received, you might have missed the other outstanding Stephen King-adapted feature film: The understated yet truly unnerving 1922. Calling it slow-burn is a bit of an understatement, not to mention a strange adjective for a movie that spans decades. But 1922 meanders at the speed of simpler times when everyone wasn’t in such a rush. The extremities of dread, however, are timeless, as the period horror proves.
With a murder, an estrangement, and a supernatural clincher that’s open to interpretation, there’s a lot of nuance happening in 1922, and it can be easy to miss key subtexts and symbolism. Thankfully, the folks at FoundFlix have released another Ending Explained that makes things crystal clear! Give it a spin and let us know what you think in the Comments section!
