So last night

I stayed up until 2:30 reading -- and finishing -- Misery. Scared the piss right out of me.

Dang, Annie Wilkes is one cocadoodie crazy woman. I was almost too scared to take the dog for the walk when I was done.

This is one movie that does the book justice. Kathy Bates is amazing. I could barely look at her after the movie.

She is so scary as Annie -- and I agree that the movie does the book justice. It was hard to not picture her face every page I turned.

Some Stephen King books don't translate well to movies....this and the Shining are two of his that scare the piss out of me!

I think it's because they are both based more on psychological terror than on the supernatural. (Sure, there are ghosts in the Shining, but it's more about Jack's psychosis than anything.) That to me is more horrific than anything else as it's more human.
