Paul Sheldon used to write for a living.Now he's writing to stay alive.

A "heart-stopping psychological thriller" (Joel Siegel), this Academy Award-winning film is "one of the best horror movies" (Time) ever.Adapted from a Stephen King novel by Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman (All The President's Men) and directed by Rob Reiner (A Few Good Men), this chiller starring Kathy Bates (Titanic) and James Cann (The Godfather) is "a Hitchcockian kind of cat-and-mouse" (The New York Times) game played between two cunning minds -- one as sharp as a tack and the other as blunt as a sledgehammer.

Novelist Paul Sheldon (Cann) doesn't remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road.Nor does he remember being nursed back from unconsciousness.All he remembers is waking up in the home of Annie Wilkes (Bates) -- a maniacal fan who is bent on keeping her favorite writer as her personal prisoner
