When romance novelist Paul Sheldon (James Caan) is rescued from a horrific car accident by reclusive loner Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates, in her Academy Award® winning role), he finds out she’s his “number one fan” and has read all of his books. But when an enraged Annie discovers that Paul kills off her favorite character (Misery Chastain) in his latest book, she decides to hold him captive and “bring her back to life” in a new novel. A terrifying psychological game ensues as Annie steps further and further back from the brink of reality, while Paul tries desperately to find a way out - before his deadline is up. Based on the chilling bestseller by Stephen King, Misery is “one of the best horror movies ever made.” (Time Magazine)

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Kathy Bates has a gift for playing cheerily hostile, paranoid misfits.
Fresh: Popular moviemaking -- elegantly economical, artlessly artful -- doesn't get much better than this.
Fresh: Bates has a field day with her role, creating a quirky, memorable object of hate.
Fresh: 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.
