You do not wish to watch a scary film with me. I normally suppose they’re dumb, so I are likely to make enjoyable of them (typically out loud). Or, on condition that I am a wimp on the subject of violence, I spend numerous time with my eyes buried within the arm of the individual subsequent to me.
Stephen King’s “Distress” (Columbia Photos) was an entire completely different expertise for me, and the truth that I could not take my eyes off the display screen was a testomony to the writing, the story line and the actors, notably lead Kathy Bates. (It could have additionally had one thing to do with the shortage of blood and guts.)
Bates gained a greatest actress Oscar for her portrayal of former nurse Annie Wilkes, who rescues novelist Paul Sheldon after a severe automobile crash. Wilkes begins off candy, one in every of Sheldon’s “greatest followers.” Then she turns cray-cray — notably after she learns Sheldon is killing off one in every of her favourite characters from his novels.
The movie is so scary. However I watched the entire thing and by no means felt prouder.
