Author, writing a book goes up state new York or somewhere, weird stuff happens

The guy, (I don't remember any actors by name.) he's writing a book or maybe he's going to check out a lead about some weird stuff happening in this village and ends up writing it. Either way, he drives upto this place and on the way, encounters people in the road, zombie types or creepy locals. I think he drives like an Audi or something. Anyways, he continues to this place, checks in at some creepy place and weird paranormal stuff starts happening. He has this whole experience, thinks he's going to die, only to make it out and get back to write a best seller.  Came out in like 94` or 95`.

No its not Misery.

Not 100% on this, but it sound sounds a bit like 'In The Mouth Of Madness'  (released 1994)

This one is new, but the story is similar.

"Twixt" (2011).

A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He's unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.
