June 14, 2019 | By | 1 Reply More

The film Doctor Sleep continues the story of Danny Torrance, forty years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining.

Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran star in the supernatural thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.

Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.

Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.

“Doctor Sleep” stars Ewan McGregor as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson as Rose the Hat, and Kyliegh Curran, in her major feature film debut, as Abra.

Trevor Macy and Jon Berg produced the film, with Roy Lee, Scott Lumpkin, Akiva Goldsman and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.

Hitting the cinemas on 31st October 2019.

    One hopes this beats the norm for King film adaptions which is pretty abysmal.

    Doctor Sleep was a fine sequel to The Shining w/characters you could rail at and cheer. Like much of what King does, the story built up to a series of crescendos and each one was almost a story unto it’s own.

    We’ll see of course, hopefully it won’t be as bad as the Dark Towers attempt….
