YMMV / Gerald's Game

  • Ending Fatigue: A common criticism of the movie version. While it only clocks in at a reasonable 103 minutes, some have found that the ending voiceover goes on for just a bit too long.
  • Iron Woobie: Jessie's situation turns her into one. She's completely helpless, but is willing to do whatever it takes to escape.
  • Nausea Fuel: How Jessie escapes from the cuffs. She degloves her hand and uses her own blood as a lubricant.
    • This and the after-effects of Prince's dining on Gerald's face are presented in all their gory glory in the film version, too.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Of course, it's a King novel. The description of the Space Cowboy in the corner, and the way Jessie's never quite sure if he's there or not, is particularly terrifying. Especially if you're the type of person who is disoriented when you wake up.
