New "Misery" Collector's Edition DVD
Misery, Rob Reiner's 1990 adaptation of the same-named Stephen King novel, will be receiving a brand-new collector's edition DVD, according the King fansite Lilja's Library. The disc will contain two commentary tracks, one by Reiner and the other by screenwriter William Goldman, as well as numerous featurettes. The featurettes include:
- "Misery Loves Company"
- "Marc Shaiman's Musical Misery Tour"
- "Diagnosing Annie Wilkes"
- "Advice for the Stalked"
- "Profile of a Stalker"
- "Celebrity Stalkers"
- "Anti-Stalking Laws"
The theatrical trailer and teaser trailer will also be included in the package.
In Misery, novelist Paul Sheldon (Caan) doesn't remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. Nor does he remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. All he remembers is waking up in the home of Annie Wilkes (Bates), a maniacal fan who is bent on keeping her favorite writer as her personal prisoner for the rest of his "cock-a-doodie" life!
The Misery Collector's Edition is set for release on October 2nd, the same day that another King adaptation, 1408, makes its DVD debut.
