Connections to Stephen King's Misery


I thought these were neat easter eggs

The pharmacist's name is Kathy Bates. (Just like the actress in Misery)

When the MC calls information, the operator gives Derry, Maine as an optional town. Derry/Maine is featured in Stephen King stories.

One of the characters mentioned at the end is named Annie, just like the character Annie Wilkes in Misery.

Good catches.

reply

Hah awesome! I saw the similarity in the plot but didn't catch any of those, very nice!

reply

Apart from all that there're some shots and camera angles that have been homaged/ripped off

reply

I didn't catch the pharmacists name, good catch!

reply

The “mom torturing daughter” aspect reminds me of Carrie, especially the scene in the basement.

reply

Great catch!

reply

Nice I got shades of M. Nights Sixth Sense.

reply

I just got the Mrs. Bates and didn’t put it together. I did wonder why the operator voice said Maine when she was on the west coast.

reply

Before I read her first name was Kathy, I thought Mrs. Bates was a reference to Psycho/Bates Motel.
