Misery is an odd entry in the horror franchise. It’s written like a prestige drama, directed by a comedy and coming-of-age director and features performances by two leads not known for their horror prowess. Yet with all these disparate elements, and despite some odd directing choices, this film holds up remarkably well. It’s no coincidence Silence of the Lambs  swept the Oscars the year after this - it’s the first Hollywood prestige horror film, and we’re reviewing it today on Macintosh & Maud Haven’t Seen What?!
