Stephen King fans unite! This film is an adaptation of the book of the same name. Annie Wilkes, recues her favorite novelist Paul Sheldon from a car crash, after seeing him drowning in a river. Annie, a self-proclaimed ‘number one fan’ of Sheldon, went nuts after grasping the thought of Sheldon killing off Annie’s favorite character in one of his novels. Annie becomes peculiar and gruesome, into forcing Sheldon to create the ending of his novel in her liking. Bookworms, I hope we don’t all end up like Annie.
I would just like to add another film that I just recently realized, should also be in this list, but I’m used to lists being in the forms of 5s or 10s (what the actual f….). Anyways, I added this since this film portrays a real life situation.
Fear (1996) is a film starring Mark Wahlberg who portrays David McCall, a you-think-is-very-sweet-and-clingy-but-is-actually-obsessive-and-violent type of boyfriend, and starts beating your guy friends if they’re walking along with you. Making the girl’s life unsafe, especially when with the one she loves. Mark Wahlberg’s acting skills are astounding which makes this film very life-like.
