A novelist writes for his life while held hostage in a snowy cabin with his “number one fan” in MISERY.

Based on Stephen King’s chilling novel, Misery details how obsessive fandom can be a real killer. After deciding to concentrate on more serious material, famed romance writer Paul Sheldon gets into a car accident during a blizzard and his “number one fan” comes to the rescue…sort of. Annie actually holds him hostage in her cabin amongst the snow-filled landscape and forces him to write her favorite character, Misery Chastain, back to life. Locked in a room, then forcefully stuck in bed and with nobody knowing where he is, Sheldon only option is to write his way out to freedom. As you can expect from a King story, there are some truly terrifying moments that stick with you.

Part of Nitehawk’s February CABIN FEVER midnite series.
