'Sometimes being stuck inside on a winters night for too long could be torture. There is Misery afoot.'
You’ve seen the best of Stephan King in cinema with such films like IT, THE SHINING and CARRIE. But none can compare to the masterful performance of obsession and horror from the flawless Cathy Bates in MISERY.
After a famous author is rescued from a car crash in the wintery pines of Nevada he is remarkably rescued by none other than his most dedicated fan. Whilst recovering in the care of his new saviour he slowly realizes that being locked up with a dedicated fan only spells Misery when he want’s to leave'.
