Director: Rob Reiner Time: 107:00:00 min. Writer: Stephen King & William Goldman

Mine: A great thriller in the Hitchock tradition. The leads are great. Bates is terrifying. Who knew that "Meathead" would be such a good and varied director.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Stephen King white-knuckler about a successful romance novelist who's nursed back to health after a snowy car crash by his Number One Fan--who turns out to be a serious sicko. Extremely well acted, but the suspense ebbs and flows; there was much more nuance, and more interesting development of the relationship between fan and prisoner, in the novel. Bates won an Oscar for her unforgettable performance. Screenplay by William Goldman; striking cinematography by Barry Sonnenfeld. J. T. Walsh has unbilled cameo as a park ranger. Later adapted as a stage play in London.

This is an awesome thriller. THE BOOK, however, gets a 10 for the novelette within the novel. This is one of King's better films and Bates is excellent as the meanie.....very suspenseful and realistic scare-film.
