Romance author Paul Sheldon (James Caan) longs to be rid of Misery, his plucky heroine of seven novels. She has delivered him fame and fortune and recognition beyond the average writer's dreams, but she is also interminably linked to him. Determined to escape an eternal role as pulp novelist, he kills her off in the eighth novel and heads to his New England cabin to work on his own Great American Novel. Upon completion, Sheldon excitedly sets out for his New York City publisher in the midst of a raging blizzard and within minutes veers into a desolate snowbank. From the brink of death, he is rescued from the snow by Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates), who just so happens to be Misery's self-professed biggest fan. At first, she nurses him back to health in her remote cabin, telling him the roads and phones are damaged by the storm, fawning over his literary accomplishments. However, things change when she purchases his eighth Misery book and reaches the point of Misery's death. Annie's psychotic underbelly swiftly surfaces as the unfortunate author is held clandestinely captive in her home. Meanwhile, a wily small-town sheriff (Richard Farnsworth) circles in...
Director Rob Reiner's adaptation of Stephen King's novel is an eerie tale of obsessiveness and isolation. The film features an excellent turn by Caan and an Oscar-winning performance by Bates.

great film
One of the best Stephen King adaptations. Superb acting. Great price.
Loved this film and the book - haven't seen in it ages though.
brilliant film
Worth it just for THAT scene!
Worth it just for THAT scene!

I've only ever been able to watch that scene once. Even now, after multiple viewings, I have to turn away. I know.... Wuss.... As well as being a (deservedly) powerful & famous scene, it's also one of nastiest gross-out scenes on my personal cringe-o-meter. It truly is horrible. Even thinking about it now makes me feel all squiffy. LOL.

Great film. Heat & Rep.
Have some heat....you dirty birdy!
Good film!! and yeah Ooooooch @thatscene !!!
