Good God this movie scared me! But not in the way you would think. I'm a huge fan of Stephen King and have come to notice that he knows how to create great characters. Misery is no exception. Annie's personality was perfectly portrayed and I love the fact that it was a psycological horror film rather than having violence and blood and gore everywhere like a lot of the films today.
Great, Fargo made my body cringe; now Anne just made my legs feel funny.
Rob Reiner’s first entry into the horror genre, is one of his best.
Kathy Bates (why do all bad people have that last name,) gives an Oscar-nominated performance as Anne Wilkes, Paul Sheldon’s (played by Godfather alumni, James Caan,) number one fan. When Paul crashes his car on the side of the road and Anne finds him, and nurses him back to health. But, when she reads his new book in which her favorite character dies, he would be lucky to get out, alive.
Kathy Bates really shines in this movie, arguably the best performance of her career; her mood swings are genuinely freighting. James Caan’s acting is terrific but really outshined by Kathy, I especially loved when he tried to escape, I really felt for him. As always, Meathead’s (a.k.a. Rob Reiner) directing is one of the best out there. A can’t miss horror movie.
