Rob Reiner’s Misery is about art, reception and how to recover from having your ankle shattered. Writer Paul Sheldon (James Caan) is saved from a car accident during a storm by Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates in an Oscar-winning role) who reveals herself to be his “number 1 fan” and holds him hostage until he writes the novel she wants. While King has often stated that Annie is the personification of cocaine, she is more broadly an instrument of obsession, a warning of what happens when love and infatuation are unbreakably intertwined proving the old adage true, it’s hell to be the rage. 

Directed by Rob Reiner  1hr 47m | Rated R
