When she discovers that Paul has killed off her beloved Misery, Annie becomes furious, holding Paul captive and forcing him to write a new Misery story which brings her back to life.
That sledgehammer scene by the way, which is arguably the most famous scene in the film, still makes me cringe even though I've seen numerous clips of it over the years.
This is a perfect film, in my view; not only have you got first-rate acting, particularly from Kathy Bates, but there's also a great plot, a good screenplay, and the setting and atmosphere all come together with taut writing to give a film that is as gripping as it is entertaining.
