Imagine any artist’s worst nightmare of running into a crazed “#1 fan” who takes you hostage and forces you to “dance like a monkey” to play out their own sadistic fantasies. Maybe Stephen King was thinking about this when writing MISERY, a book and movie about a famous author (James Caan) who gets into a violent car accident who is then saved, coincidently, by his “#1 fan.” What unfolds is an absolute nightmare of seclusion, captivity and abuse that reaches a boiling climax of white knuckle suspense! This is easily one of the best Stephen King adaptions.
“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.”Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune
