Paul Sheldon used to write for a living. Now he’s writing to stay alive. On November 28, 2017, Scream Factory proudly presents the iconic thriller Misery in its definitive home video release. The 2-disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray comes complete with a new 4K restoration from the original film elements and hours of bonus features, including new interviews with director Rob Reiner (The Princess Bride) and special effects artist Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead).
Novelist Paul Sheldon doesn’t remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. He doesn’t remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. But he will never forget Annie Wilkes.
James Caan and Academy Award® winner* Kathy Bates star in the bone-shattering thriller Misery, adapted from the novel by Stephen King. As Paul (Caan) recuperates from his injuries in the secluded cabin of his benefactor Annie (Bates), he begins to discover that beneath the seemingly kind and naive exterior of his self-described “number one fan” lurks a mind that is cunning, unhinged, and bent on keeping her favorite writer as her personal prisoner for the rest of his “cock-a-doodie” life … and Sheldon must engage his savior-turned-captor in a battle of wills that will push them both to the brink.
Adapted by two-time Oscar®-winning** screenwriter William Goldman and directed by Rob Reiner, Miseryis considered by critics and fans (number ones and others) to be among the greatest horror-thrillers of all time. Revisit this classic tonight with your friends … after all, Misery loves company.
