Annie Wilkes is Paul Sheldon’s number one fan. She did read all of Paul’s Misery books, a series of romance novels. A twist of fate sends Paul to Annie’s remote house, and is now forced to write a novel out of Annie’s ideal story.
Let me tell you, it was so difficult to continuously watch this movie. I had to pause it numerous times, take a deep breath, and stall myself with other things before I move on. The scenes were overwhelming, unexpected, and breathtaking. The thrill of finding out whether Paul would survive, Annie’s next plan of action, of knowing what’s happening while the police has yet to find out, and if Paul would get caught trying to escape are what made my breathing go from a normal 20-30 per minute to two sets of inhales and exhales.
We have been too caught up with the conventional horror movies, the type that is always involves ghosts and other paranormal creatures. This Halloween, why not take a break from those Jump scares, and watch this psychological thriller movie for a change.
