1922 (2017)

Zak Hilditch directs Thomas Jane, Neal McDonough and Molly Parker in this period psychological horror about a farmer who kills his wife and whose reality falls apart. 

As a character study this works, Jane is convincingly gruff, subtle and batshit as a guilt ridden killer. But the story is too slight to fill the running time and you wish you were watching a King adaptation with a bit more emotional punch and scope. Like Shawshank, like The Mist.
