Yeah, Misery is right up there with my favorite books and films. I think the book is slightly darker - the way she deals with him not escaping and her killing the police officers for example.
I tried to watch 'The Dead Zone' - but I couldn't get into it, even though I think Christopher Walken is amazing and he's one of my favorite actors. I started reading the book - actually I'd say I got about three quaters of the way through - and then it started getting really political and it lost me. I need to finish that one though.
I remember feeling SO sorry for him in it, the way his mother had died and his g/f was with someone else. It was really sad. I loved the way King got their relationships expressed so superbly. Yeah, I need to revisit both of those - the book and the movie.
