Synopsis

A “heart-stopping psychological thriller” (Joel Siegel), this ACADEMY AWARD®-Winning film* is “one of the best” (Time) horror movies ever. Adapted from a Stephen King story, this unforgettable film will draw you into a harrowing game played between two cunning minds – one as sharp as a tack and the other as blunt as a sledgehammer. Novelist Paul Sheldon (James Caan) doesn’t remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. All he remembers is waking up in the home of Annie Wilkes (Kathy 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!

*1990: Actress (Kathy Bates)

Reviews

Desmond Ryan Philadelphia Inquirer | August 12, 2013

Bates turns Wilkes into the nastiest nurse to reach the screen since Louise Fletcher tormented Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Dave Kehr Chicago Tribune | August 12, 2013

Like any good work of popular culture, Rob Reiner's film of Stephen King's best-selling book Misery functions on more than one level.

Richard Schickel TIME Magazine | October 14, 2008

Popular moviemaking -- elegantly economical, artlessly artful -- doesn't get much better than this.

Variety Staff Variety | September 25, 2007

Bates has a field day with her role, creating a quirky, memorable object of hate.

Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader | September 25, 2007

A skillfully pared-down (if psychologically thin) horror thriller.

Colette Maude Time Out | June 24, 2006

Reiner captures just the right level of physical tension, but for the most part wisely emphasises the mental duels. Terrific.

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | January 01, 2000

It is a good story, a natural, and it grabs us.
