DAMN! Misery is a masterpiece in thriller cinema! That doesnt even do it justice. It is one of the scariest movies I've ever seen!
Paul Sheldon is a writer who got his big break writing these kind of romance novels based on a character called Misery. He never really wanted to write these stories and he wants to go on to write better things so in his last book he kills the character off. After he writes a new book in the mountains of Colorado he crashes his beautiful 1965 Mustang (WHY IS IT ALWAYS THE CAR!) in the snow. He wakes up in the house of Anne Wilkes who is an ex nurse and a huge fan of his Misery books. She takes good care of him until she finds out that he killed Misery in his latest book. She goes crazy and keeps him captive so that he can write a new Misery book.
Now the movie might not sound that scary. But Wilkes turns out to be a murdering psycho who deliberately cripples Sheldon and kills anyone who comes looking for him. She's a complete psycho and she's scary as shit.
The ending is great! It's one of the best climaxes in a film other than Scarface. This movie has fantastic acting and suspense that will kill you! If you want to be thrilled and a little grossed out then check this out!
