YMMV / Gerald's Game

  • Iron Woobie: Jessie's situation turns her into one. She's completely helpless, but is willing to do whatever it takes to escape.
  • 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.
  • Nausea Fuel: How Jessie escapes from the cuffs. She scalps her hand and uses her own blood as a lubricant.
