Plot[ edit ] Mort Rainey is a successful novelist in Maine. One day, he is confronted by a man from Mississippi named John Shooter who claims Mort plagiarized a story he wrote. Mort vehemently denies ever plagiarizing anything. Shooter leaves, but not before leaving his manuscript, "Secret Window, Secret Garden. When Mort's housemaid recovers the manuscript—thinking it belongs to Mort—he finally reads Shooter's story, discovering that it is almost identical to his short story "Sowing Season. The only differences are the title, the character's name, the diction , and the ending. Mort becomes disturbed by these findings. Shooter returns a few days later. Having learned that "Sowing Season" was published two years before Shooter claimed to have written "Secret Window, Secret Garden," Mort confronts Shooter with this information. An enraged Shooter accuses Mort of lying and demands proof, giving Mort three days to show him his published story. Overnight, he kills Mort's cat and burns down the house of Mort's ex-wife, which contained the magazine issue in which "Sowing Season" was published. Mort orders a new copy of the magazine. Shooter, angry that Mort has involved other people in their business, kills both men and plants evidence framing Mort for the murders. Upon receiving the magazine and returning home, Mort finds that "Sowing Season" has been removed. Mort realizes that John Shooter is really his own split personality.

He and Mort flat-out hate each other.

Koepp expands their mutual, antagonistic back-and-forth into some very funny and affecting scenes, the best of which is their encounter at a gas station, where Mort provokes Ted into taking a swing — which he neatly sidesteps, allowing Ted to break his hand on a car window.

Wracked with guilt, shame and the shattered ego of the cuckolded husband, Mort goes crackers and puts himself — and his soon-to-be-ex-wife, whom he appears to love and hate in equal measure — through hell.

Four past Midnight - Wikipedia

The movie skips all that. I think the plagiarism back-story was present in early drafts of the script, but was excised… possibly because the story was quite complicated enough without a bunch of flashbacks.

It certainly motivates the major theme running through the film and novella: theft. Shooter merges with Mort, and first Ted, then Amy, are brutally murdered by a shovel-blade to the head.

The ending is a shocking, daring choice by both star and director.

The Stephen King story pre-dates Fight Club — both the book and the film — by nearly a decade. Have you seen Secret Window?
