** This is toned down a good deal from the book [[spoiler:in which Annie chops off Paul's foot, to punish him for an escape attempt, and later his thumb, after an argument over problems with the typewriter she supplied him]].

** [[spoiler:All whilst discussing her extremely nihilistic viewpoint of the world, with humans essentially being trapped rats with broken backs. It really gives an insight into how [[AxeCrazy insane]] Annie really is.]]

Pretty much all of the horror of ''Misery'' comes from Annie Wilkes, one of the most horrifying women ever put to print and screen. How do we fear thee? Let us count the ways...

* While Annie is visiting her "Laughing Place," Paul ventures outside his room again for supplies. He picks up Annie's "Memory Lane" scrapbook and leafs through it. He finds out why she was "up there on the stand in Denver," and more importantly, that [[spoiler: she's an extremely crafty serial killer who's been murdering people since she was a child. He (not to mention the reader) now knows that Annie is much more dangerous and terrifying than he ever suspected.]]

* The scene in the movie where Annie convinces Paul that he needs to burn his new manuscript. While slowly tossing lighter fluid on his bed. All with a sweet smile on her face.

** Apparently, Kathy Bates was ''[[NightmareFetishist looking forward]]'' to this scene in the movie, but it was deemed to be too [[CrossesTheLineTwice unintentionally funny]] to film.

* A simple phrase from the book perfectly describes the terror that Annie inspires.
-->Being here with her was like being with the Angel of Death.

* The very first time we see Annie show her true colors in the film. Paul wakes up from his slumber in the middle of the night to see his carer, or rather captive, standing by his bed in a menacing fashion, having read Paul's latest Misery book and discovers that her beloved leading character was killed off. She does not take the news well. Paul tries to reassure her that in spite of her death, her spirit lives on. [[BerserkButton Big mistake]]:
