A "heart-stopping thriller" (Joel Siegel), this Academy Award-winning film is "one of the best horror movies" (Time magazine) ever. Adapted from a Stephen King story by Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman (All the President's Men, The Princess Bride) and directed by Rob Reiner (A Few Good Men), this thriller classic starring Kathy Bates (Titanic) and James Caan (The Godfather) is "a Hitchcockian kind of cat-and-mouse" (The New York Times) gameplayed between two cunning minds, one as sharp as a tack and the other as blunt as a sledgehammer.
The Story: 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!
