Bed-ridden author James Caan is tortured by cock-a-doody number one fan (and Oscar winner) Kathy Bates, in a taut and often blackly comic watershed moment for Stephen King adaptations (and director Rob Reiner, before his descent into rom-com hell).
There are a few holes in the plot, mainly towards the end, but from start to harrowing finish, it is blissfully apparent that Rob Reiner can indeed turn his hand to virtually anything. Roll on the Buzby Berkeley extravaganza.
