Editorial Reviews

A "heart-stopping psychological thriller" (Joel Siegel) this Academy Award®-winning* film is "one of the best horror movies" (Time) ever. Adapted from a Stephen King story by Oscar®-winning** screenwriter William Goldman (All the President's Men) and directed by Rob Reiner (A Few Good Men), this chiller starring Kathy Bates (Titanic) and James Caan (The Godfather), is "a Hitchcockian kind of cat-and-mouse" (The New York Times) game played between two cunning minds one as sharp as a tack and the other as blunt as a sledgehammer. Novelist Paul Sheldon (Caan) doesn't remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. Nor does he remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. All he remembers is waking up in the home of Annie Wilkes (Bates)a maniacal fan who is bent on keeping her favorite writer as her personal prisoner for the rest of his "cock-a-doodie" life!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's more than great--it's perfect February 17, 2003
Format:DVD
Misery is an exceedingly good adaptation of the original novel by Stephen King. The novel features one of King's most tightly-wound, increasingly suspenseful tales, and this movie faithfully brings the novel to life on the big screen. Paul Sheldon, America's best selling writer, creator of Misery Chastain and chronicler of her romantic and human struggles and successes, has just finished writing a "serious" novel he hopes will give him the stature he desires. On his trip home with the manuscript, a fierce blizzard causes him to lose control of his car. Annie Wilkes, his number one fan, finds his car at the bottom of a hill, pulls Sheldon out of it, and takes him home to nurse back to health. As Sheldon begins to adjust to his new surroundings, he is increasingly bothered by his caregiver's erratic mood swings. He soon finds himself a virtual prisoner in her house, essentially unable to move with his two mangled legs. When Annie reads his brand new book, she is exceedingly unhappy with it. When she gets the newly published Misery Chastain novel and finds out that her beloved Misty is dead, she begins unleashing her fury on Sheldon and insisting he resurrect Misty in a new novel written especially for her. All this time, the small mountain town's husband-and-wife police force search for any sign of the missing author (albeit halfheartedly). Eventually, Sheldon realizes escape is something only he can achieve for himself.
James Caan is quite good as Paul Sheldon, but Kathy Bates simply is Annie Wilkes. Her performance as this complicated, mentally disturbed super-fan broods over this entire movie, making it the riveting thriller it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars "It's more than great. It's perfect." September 25, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Finally a special edition of Misery! This has been previously released on Region 2 DVD but this is the first official Region 1 release of the special edition. Kathy Bates won a much deserved Best Actress Oscar for her performance. This is one of Stephen King's best and while there are a few humorous moments most notably through Kathy's dialogue, the horror and suspense never fizzle in any way. This is one of the best horror/suspense pictures out there and should be in any fans collection for multiple viewings. Here are the special features:

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Thriller October 12, 2007
By Jay
Format:DVD
Misery is one of the best in the horror/suspense genre. I have to say I don't think I've seen a better movie that was based off of a book. Usually the book is so good and the movie is sub par, but this one is the exception.

The story begins as writer Paul Sheldon(James Cann)crashes in car while driving in a blizzard. He awakes from being unconscious to find himself in the home and care of a very obsessed fan(Kathy Bates). As he gets better he begins to realize his caretaker has no intention on letting him go anywhere.

Exceptional thriller which anyone would enjoy. I completely recommend Misery especially if you are a Steven King fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loaded With Thrills and Suspense January 23, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
James Caan, Richard Farnsworth, and Kathy Bates star in this thrilling adaptation of Stephen King's excellent novel. Caan stars as Paul Sheldon, a very successful author of the "Misery Chastain" series of books. After finishing his latest installment of his series, he sets off to deliver the manuscript to his editor. Unfortunately, he encounters a terrible snowstorm, and his car slides off the road and over a cliff. He is trapped inside with numerous injuries and unable to escape.

Fortunately for Paul, Annie Wilkes (Bates) comes along and pries his car door open with a crowbar and frees him. Annie takes Paul to her house to nurse him back to health. As Paul is beginning to convalesce, Annie reveals that she is his "number one fan", and has read every book in the Misery series several times over. She also has authgraphed pictures of Paul throughout her house. At first, Paul is flattered by Annie's kindness, but he also suspects something is wrong with this good samaritan.

Annie also managed to retrieve Paul's manuscript from the wreckage, and she begs Paul to let her read it. After a while, he relents. But after reading it, Annie goes completely nuts because Paul has killed off Misery. Paul now realizes that Annie is insane and the only way for him to survive is to give in to her wishes and write a new novel which brings Misery back to life.

Meanwhile, the local sheriff (Farnsworth) has become aware of Paul's disappearance and has begun an investigation into his whereabouts.

Paul continues to work on his new novel and as he writes, he's realizing that he's creating his best work yet. However, he still has Annie to deal with. He's continually locked up in his room, but he does manage to unlock his door by using a paper clip in the lock.
