Sometimes a villain is hard to spot at first. Take Annie Wilkes. She pulls novelist Paul Sheldon from a car wreck. Sheβs a hero! Sheβs Paulβs biggest fan! Sheβsβ¦sheβsβ¦sheβs a cockadoodie lunatic is what she is. If you disturb the fragile fantasy someone is living in, you risk unleashing a monster. MISERY earned the Oscar for Best Actress.
