Kathy Bates plays psychotic Nurse Annie Wilkes whose new patient is her favourite novelist, Paul Sheldon played by James Caan. But when he kills off her favourite character, Misery in his new book, she becomes his captor.

Annie forces him to burn his latest book and write another one in which he brings the character back to life.

Tagline: This Christmas there will be ... Misery.

1991 Oscar win:

Kathy Bates won for Best Actress In A Leading Role making Misery one of only three horror films to win an Oscar in the history of the awards.

Fun facts:

Jack Nicholson was offered the role of Paul Sheldon before it went James Caan. He turned it down because he didn't want to do another Stephen King movie after The Shining - it terrified him too much.

Stephen King's first typewriter had a missing "N" in the same way Paul's does.
