Thriller Double Feature on DVD
Released within three months of each other in the early ’90s, Misery and The Silence of the Lambs remain must-see films for any movie buff, and their creepy story lines make them especially well suited for a Halloween viewing party.
Based on the Stephen King novel, Misery stars James Caan as a novelist who’s nursed back to health after a car crash by a particularly obsessive fan. Watch it for the no-holds-barred performance by Kathy Bates, who expertly masks her character’s sinister motives with a cheery disposition.
