United States, 1990 / 103 Mins
Director: Rob Reiner
Starring: Kathy Bates, James Caan
A "heart-stopping psychological thriller" (Joel Siegel) this Academy Award-winning film is "one of the best horror movies" (Time) ever. Adapted from a Stephen King story by Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman and directed by Rob Reiner, this chiller starring Kathy Bates (Titanic) and James Caan (The Godfather), is agame played between two cunning minds - one as sharp as a tack and the other as blunt as a sledgehammer. Novelist Paul Sheldon (Caan) doesn't remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. Nor does he remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. All he remembers iswaking up in the home of Annie Wilkes (Bates)a maniacal fan who is bent on keeping her favorite writer as her personal prisoner for the rest of his "cock-a-doodie" life!
