A little Misery is good for the soul

A nice little surprise from MGM this morning. Misery is coming back as a Collector’s Edition DVD this October from MGM.

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!

Some features from the existing DVDs are coming over hear including seperate commentaries from Rob Reiner and William Goldman and the featurettes Misery Loves Company and Marc Shaiman’s Music Misery Tour, but newly added to the set are the featurettesDiagnosing Annie Wilkes, Advice for the Stalked, Profile of a Stalker, Celebrity Stalkers and Anti-Stalking Laws plus the trailers.

The set looks like a lot of deviant fun with a suggested retail price of $19.98 and and October 2nd release date.
