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.Read more ›

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.
As far as the movie itself, I will simply say that Kathy Bates earned her Academy Award for this performance. Her character Annie Wilkes is deservedly listed as seventeenth on the all-time movie villain list by the American Film Institute. Very suspenseful. Parental warning: the movie does feature psychological suspense, scenes of violence, and some profanity. Viewer discretion is advised. Otherwise, I recommend this movie for a few good scares.
Additional Comment: This one-disc edition has no special features.
It's unfortunate for the man she saves, has now become one of her most prized possesions, while he's healing himself in her home thinking help is on the way, but can't due to current snowstorms. She never makes the call.
And while he is waiting, she discovers an awful secret of his. The man, who happens to be an author of her favorite literary fictional female character, has come to terms by ending his writing career by killing the female character off in his final book.
And that's when hell, breaks loose!
