Paul Sheldon is a bestselling novelist who has finally met his biggest fan, Annie Wilkes. She is more than just a reader of his books. She is also Paul's nurse, tending to his shattered bones after an automobile accident he had in a blizzard. She is also his captor, keeping him as a prisoner in her isolated house. Now Annie wants Paul to write his greatest work, and all just for her. Paul Sheldon used to write to make a living, now he writes to stay alive.
I'm giving this movie three skulls, just like I gave the book. This movie was created into a movie from a novel done by Stephen King. I personally think the book is better than the movie and you should read that before watching this movie.
The movie was definitely accurate to the book. The movie did change some things around and also did leave a few parts out from the book, but it was still pretty accurate to the book. I definitely would like to say there was one thing I liked better from the movie than the book which is the movie definitely confused me much less than the book did.
Now the reason I'm giving this movie a three skull review is because it didn't scare me and it could've been a little bit better with the gore. I'm not saying the movie had to be gory, but there were some parts in the movie where I felt they could've added more gore. For example, there is a part in the movie where Annie Wilkes breaks both of Paul Sheldon's ankles. Now, it disturbed me from just hearing his ankles break, but I think the movie should've done what Annie Wilkes did in the book which was she chopped off his foot and then set his leg on fire where his foot was missing. I feel that would've been a better edition to the movie. I think the movie should've added more of the gory parts from the book into it.
Something I did like about the movie was how suspenseful it was and how it just got me captivated into watching it. The movie was definitely worth watching, it didn't give me too many disappointments. My favorite part of the movie was the ending where Paul Sheldon tries to kill Annie Wilkes. That part definitely was the most suspenseful.
Overall this was a pretty good movie. It didn't scare me, but I feel for some people it may. I would recommend watching this movie and reading the book.
