Authors in peril are the focus of this Stephen King double feature. In MISERY, novelist James Caan has a car accident and is rescued by nurse Kathy Bates — who is also an obsessed fan. Timothy Hutton plays a dual role in George A. Romero's THE DARK HALF, as a writer and his malevolent alter ego. Guests to be announced.

Introduction of THE DARK HALF by actor John Ponzio.

MISERY
1990, Warner Bros., 107 min, USA, Dir: Rob Reiner
When novelist James Caan has a car accident, he's lucky — or so it would seem — to be rescued by his «biggest fan,» a nurse (Kathy Bates) eager to care for him. Unfortunately, Caan's would-be savior is not happy with the direction his writing is taking and will stop at nothing — including murder — to «help» him. Rob Reiner's expertly staged adaptation of Stephen King's bestseller is a masterpiece of claustrophobic suspense, and a terrific showcase for two incredible actors (Bates won the Oscar for her performance). “Misery is alive! Misery is alive! Oh, this whole house is going to be full of romance! Ooooh, I’m going to put on my Liberace records!”

THE DARK HALF
1993, Park Circus/MGM, 122 min, USA, Dir: George A. Romero
Stephen King used a pseudonym to pen some of his bleakest work, a situation that inspired this tale of two authors. When Maine writer Thad Beaumont (Timothy Hutton) decides he’s through using the name “George Stark” to churn out thrillers, he tries to bury his alter ego, but Stark (also played by Hutton) responds with a murderous rampage. Costarring Amy Madigan, Michael Rooker and Julie Harris.
