Misery scene horror fans can’t stop revisiting
In response to the question “What are the scenes in horror films that legitimately make your jaw drop?” ” Redditor surya_1349 replied, “The drag scene in ‘Misery'”, with user kinetochore21 okay, saying: “It always pleases me after many covers.” After Annie finds out that Sheldon has become a little too mobile for her liking, she ties him up, tells him how much she loves him, and breaks his ankles with a hammer. It takes a lot to leave an indelible impression on horror fans, and what’s even more unsettling is that the scene isn’t as King wrote it. In the novel, Annie cuts off Paul’s left foot with an ax. The scene was so grotesque that it scared original “Misery” director George Roy Hill (via Yahoo! New). “Although I liked the movie version better. I think it’s more brutal than just cutting it,” wrote Deduction_power.
Director Rob Reiner, who was initially to stay true to the novel, explained his change of mind during his commentary for the DVD. “We wanted Paul Sheldon at the end of this movie to emerge victorious over Annie Wilkes, and if he finds himself without a foot – even if he ends up beating her and she dies – then maybe he paid a price too high for that. ”Reiner said (via Yahoo! News).
