Misery has to be the best adaptation of a Stephen King novel. A close runner up is Stand By Me, but for suspense and tension that just gets tighter and tighter, watch Misery. Kathy Bates can go from nice and cheerful to downright crazy like someone turning on a light switch. While watching James Caan suffer through the torture that Bates puts him through, you can’t help but sympathize with the guy. Rob Reiner presents us with the problem, and he slowly escalates the tension and the dread that creeps over the movie. Even though the book was different in the “hobbling” process, Annie Wilkes’ method of hobbling still gives me the chills whenever I watch it.
A Solid Thriller
A very good movie of a Steven King novel, keeping very close to the book, the film retains the tension King created and i have to say Kathy Bates captures the insanity of the Annie Wilkes character expertly.
Paul Sheldon (James Caan) is a novel writer, who creates stories about Misery Chastaine, Annie’s favourite character that she follows religiously through every one of Sheldon’s novels.
Sheldon who has finally finished with the Misery novels is caught in a road accident and is rescued by his number one fan. Too injured to move and the weather preventing any further help arriving, Annie patches him up and begins to nurse him back to health.
After reading Sheldon’s new release, the final outing for the Misery character, Annie decides that this is unacceptable and holds Sheldon prisoner , while she forces him to write a new Misery book and reincarnate her favourite character.
The main difference from the book is the scene where Annie smashes Sheldons ankles with a sledge hammer, in the book she removes his feet with an axe, although this scene loses non of the horror, despite the change.
