May 10, 1991: Misery, in UK cinemas

“Paul Sheldon used to write for a living. Now, he’s writing to stay alive.”

Original Cinema Quad Poster - Movie Film PostersMisery is a 1990 American psychological thriller film based on Stephen King‘s 1987 novel of the same name and starring James Caan, Kathy Bates, Lauren Bacall, Richard Farnsworth, and Frances Sternhagen about a psychotic fan who holds an author captive and forces him to write her stories.

Directed by Rob Reiner, the film received critical acclaim for Bates’s performance as the psychopathic Annie Wilkes, and Bates won the 1990 Academy Award for Best Actress for her role, making Misery, as of 2017, the only Stephen King adaptation to be an Oscar-winning film. The ‘hobbling’ scene in the film was ranked #12 on Bravo’s 100 Scariest Movie Moments. [Wikipedia]
