Dear Constant Reader is a celebration of the work of the great master of the horror genre (and more), Stephen King.
Successful romantic novelist, Paul Sheldon, who just had his life saved by his No.1 fan...now lives to regret it. When Ann Wilkes discovers that her favorite character, Misery Chastain, has been killed off in his latest novel shell do anything to make sure he brings her back to life. As we had so much fun watching and discussing The Shining last year, we decided to keep the Halloween tradition going with another Stephen King adaptation - the harrowing chamber piece Misery. Arguably more thriller than horror, Kings adept hand at psychological terror, coupled with a memorable and Oscar-winning performance from Kathy Bates makes this both a wonderful novel and a classic of modern cinema. Buy the book in Chapters Bookstore Parnell Street, come down to our screening and join us afterwards in the bar for a fun and informal discussion.
