Every day throughout the month of October, William "Bibbs" Bibbiani from The B-Movies Podcast and Ryan Turek from Shock Till You Drop are reviewing a different theatrically-released horror movie based on the works of Stephen King. Why? Because we're his number one fan. Welcome to Day 15, where Bibbs and Ryan review the Oscar-winning thriller Misery, directed by Rob Reiner and starring James Caan as a romance novel author trapped in a snowbound cabin with a psychotic but devoted reader played by Kathy Bates.

Is Misery the horror classic we all remember, or has time been unkind to its slow-burn style of scariness? Bibbs and Ryan have the debate on Kings of Horror.

Come back every single day in October as Bibbs and Ryan review another theatrically-released film based on the acclaimed Stephen King's novels, short stories and original screenplays on Kings of Horror! Follow your hosts on Twitter at @WilliamBibbiani@_RyanTurek and @STYDNews.
