About this movie

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)

Buenisima peli, bien terrorifica, lastima que le sacaron cosas mas aterradoras qje estaban en el libro, como cuando le corta annie a paul el pie con un hacha, o cuando le inyecta electricidad, o cuando le corta 2 dedos, o cuando le tritura la cabeza al policia ( no me acuerdo el nombre) con una podadora de cesped o cuando annie mata a una periodista, o cuando le hace beber agua sucia y cuando lo esposa y le pone un trapo en la boca ( me parece que esto pasa en la peli) la recomiendo, veanla :-)

Excellent horror movie. Clear storytelling, excellent twists, excellent acting by both main actors. Never gets boring. A must see movie adaptation of Stephen King's bestselling 'Misery' book. Better than 'It' which is also another Stephen King movie adaptation. Two words: Watch it!

Siendo cincera es la mejor película thriller porque cumple con su cometido te mantiene pegado al asiento y hay muchas escenas con tención "ejemplo:el escritor se cae para salir ase rruido y Annie escucha tensión y te asusta /pero lo que dije anteriormente es un ejemplo
