Excellent, intense, suspenseful, brilliantly written and acted. Misery is an unforgettable masterpiece and one of Stephen Kings best.

The bare-bones narrative doesn't detract from this overall unsettling and kick arse 90's flick.

Yikes, Cathy Bates sure does know how to scare the crap out of me!

Brilliant, angry, violent and frightening, Misery proves that even by concentrating on a fictional fictional character the whole time, it stands as one of the best American movies ever made. The best thing that made the movie work was that the villain Annie keeps pretending and saying that she's nice and happy-go-lucky and compassionate, even though Paul would think otherwise.

This Stephen King movie isn't the best with its all too predictable plot and with Cathy Bates' character sometimes being more annoying than scary, but it is intense and has a nice ending. B minus

Leave it to Stephen King to turn being a major fan into some of the most terrifying words a person could hear. A deservedly award winning portrayal of obsessive fandom by Kathy Bates along with the seemingly sheer hopelessness of James Caan's situation help make this one of the most frightening movies I've ever seen and without even a hint of the supernatural.

The brilliant performance of Kathy Bates was amazing, she really deserved that Academy Award and that Golden Globe for Best Actress. Her gestures and the ability to look like a gentle lady infatuated with Paul's books when you can tell she's absolutely mental are breathtaking. Stephen King is really one of the best authors of our time. I do not doubt this is a wonderful novel as well.

An unnerving thriller based on a Stephen King novel. Kathy Bates is brilliant as the psychotic Annie Wilkes. (First and only viewing - 10/6/2014)

Certainly the source material is brilliant but William Goldman has made an exceptional adaptation of Stephen King's novel. Furthermore, Rob Reiner's direction is inspiring while great work has been made by the editor (specifically, the parallel editing creates unbelievable suspense). Still, nothing would be the same without Kathy Bates playing Annie Wilkes. Using a wide range of emotions, expressions and looks, she is nothing less than perfect. 8,5/10

Misery is the perfect horror film because this could actually happen, which is terrifying. I expect this is Stephen King's worst nightmare. James Caan is fantastic and Kathy Bates is psychotic and petrifying. The camera angles from Reiner are genius showing the characters as vulnerable or dominant in a subtle manor. It's a controversial opinion but I think I might like Misery even more than The Shining.

1980's The Shining And 1994's The Shawshank Redemption Are Two Of My Favorite Movies.

Amazing a revoulutionary movie loved it.

Suspenseful, tense, exciting and at times gruesome, Misery is a nerve-wracking, well-written descent into madness that adeptly explores the fine line between devoted fan and twisted psychopath, and features Kathy Bates' terrifying, hilarious performance as a caretaker losing her grip on reality.

IN THIS MOVIE it was talked about a novelist Paul had an accident in a blizzard,a woman she was a nurse and saved him.

While plenty of terror films have been adapted from Stephen King's original, Misery made itself the best movie written by King with the wonderful act and extremely nervous plot.
½ February 18, 2017
It was good, but just like the book it wasn't as great as I was anticipating. Bates is great and Caan is fine, so at least their performances help bring up an otherwise dull existence, something the book couldn't quite do.

I have always loved this movie oddly enough since I was a child. And seeing it on TV the other night just brought back memories to just how awesome Kathy Bates is. Throughout the entire movie, you're thinking she is quite possibly the creepiest person on Earth. Makes me think I shouldn't get so obsessed with things...
