Gerald’s Game movie storyline:

Gerald and Jessie Burlingame arrive at an isolated lake house in Fairhope, Alabama, for a romantic weekend away, in an attempt to save their strained marriage and rekindle their sex life. Gerald suggests that he handcuff Jessie and she agrees. While he takes a Viagra tablet, Jessie calls out to a stray dog with some steak and, when re-entering the house, leaves the front door ajar.

Hours later as the sun is starting to set, Jessie is becoming weak and tired. The dog she fed earlier walks into the room and sniffs around Gerald’s body. Jessie tries to scare it away but it bites a chunk out of Gerald’s arm and eats it by the door in front of her. A distraught Jessie begins to cry but seconds later, Gerald stands up, in pain from the bite in his arm. Jessie then notices his dead body is still on the floor and realizes the living Gerald is a manifestation of her fatigued mind. He taunts Jessie with her memories from their strained marriage, in which she was afraid to question the darkness in him. Jessie tries again and succeeds miraculously in freeing herself from the cuffs. She gloats to Gerald, then turns around and tells her real self that it is easy to escape; the real Jessie, still trapped on the bed, is now hallucinating a version of herself too. Both speak to her and trigger Jessie to remember the glass of water above the bed. She is able to reach the glass but cannot bring it to her mouth. The hallucinations remind Jessie of the tag she put on the shelf, which she rolls into a straw to drink from the glass.

When she wakes, the “man made of moonlight” is standing at the end of the hall. Jessie gives him her wedding ring for his trinket box. She makes it outside to her car and drives away, but sees the man again in the back seat. She crashes the car, but people nearby find her.
