Annie Wilkes (Misery) (6/6)

Annie Wilkes makes up the chief and primary antagonist in Stephen King’s ‘Misery’, the story of an author being held hostage by an adoring yet totally unstable fan. Annie Wilkes demonstrates all the traits of a true psychopath across the entirety of Misery, showcasing a brutal and completely manic persona as she battles to keep Paul Sheldon in his bed and in her hands. What makes Annie so scary is the unsettling reality that she is very personalised; there is no mask or any real evil motivations to cause harm to others, it is only her mental instabilities that really drag her through as someone who can terrify audiences.
