Not only does this supreme psychological nail-biter hold up as one of Rob Reiner's best efforts of his very eclectic career, but it also at the top of the heap of Stephen King novels turned Hollywood product as well as one of best homages to Alfred Hitchcock - EVER! Kathy Bates is utterly brilliant in her Oscar-winning role as Annie Wilkes; a character to go down in screen history as one of the most demented ever shown. James Caan matches her every step of the way as he becomes her captive prey in her remote Denver farmhouse after she saves him from a near fatal car accident. Stunningly effective suspense is well orchestrated by Reiner from the taut Goldman script and the supporting cast is first rate including Richard Farnsworth as the local. small town sheriff who may be too wise for his own good! Classic climax and wonderfully creepy denouement . Simple superb all around - when they say they don't make 'em like that anymore, this is proof that they still can!
