Between his big screen adaptations of IT, The Dark Tower and the upcoming Gerald's Game, to the small screen arrivals of The Mist, Mr. Mercedes and Castle Rock, it is very much King-time right now.

Adding to their other King horror adaptation, Netflix have released the first trailer for 1922, based on a little known Stephen King novella.

The movie stars Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Molly Parker (House Of Cards) and Neal McDonough (Band Of Brothers), let us have a look at the trailer before we get into the details...

So, 1922 was a part of a collection of short stories King called Full Dark, No Stars released back in 2010, which also featured A Good Marriage and Big Driver, both of which have already been made into movies.

The story with this one involves a simple yet proud rancher (Jane) in the year 1922 (obvz) who conspires to murder his wife (Parker) for financial gain, convincing his teenage son (Dylan Schmid) to participate.

If you think that description - and the trailer - are heavy on spoilers, then don't worry. The story isn't really about the murder... it is about what happens to the men once they've committed the murder, and are forced to deal with the horrific consequences.
