Rob Reiner and Stephen King collaborated again on this movie, an adaptation of King's novel about writer Paul Sheldon's (James Caan) worst fear. Meeting his Number one fan! This fan, Anne Wilkes (Kathy Bates), is not quite in her right mind and desperately wants him to publish his next book, part of a series of romantic soap operas. She has many ways of making him write, and she will do anything to make him do what she wants. Anything!!

A King thriller with plenty of chills and suspense to please the most avid horror fan. Bates is superb in her Oscar-winning lead as the psychotic fan. Caan is fine (if a bit miscast) in the role of the meek writer, driven to desperation in his attempt to escape from this madwoman. The camera work is quite good too, with beautiful scenery thrown in for good measure. I think I must warn those of you with weak stomachs, you probably don't want to see what Bates can do with that sledgehammer of hers.

My Rating = Three Stars
