Stream Guide: Gerald’s Game & Assassin’s Creed

Mostly on the thriller / horror side, this week’s list contains not one, but two of the “V/H/S” horror anthology films featuring some of the most disturbing shorts you’ll ever see. Starring Kate Beckinsale, Stanley Tucci, and Michael Caine, “Stonehearst Asylum” is another thriller following in the footsteps of Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island.” Richard Ayoade directs Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska in the indie drama “The Double” while Nicole Kidman and Hugo Weaving star in “Strangerland” about a couple that loses their teenage children right before a dust storm settles in on a remote desert town. One of the most eerie films of all-time, “Let The Right One In” is a Swedish vampire coming of age film. And James Franco and Kate Hudson come across some money that isn’t theirs in “Good People” and end up on the run from people that want it back. If you need a break from the horror / thrillers, there’s “Bachelorette,” starring Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher, and Rebel Wilson, an indie attempt at the comedy “Bridesmaids,” or if you’re in the mood for action, Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard star in the video game adaptation of “Assassin’s Creed.” But number one is right back to the thriller / horror genre, with horror director Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of the Stephen King novel “Gerald’s Game,” starring the gorgeous Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood, about a woman who must battle mental and physical tests after she is handcuffed to a bed in a secluded cabin and her husband suffers a fatal heart attack.
