The Shining

Doctor Sleep


Now a cult classic, The Shining, the big-screen adaptation of Stephen King's bestselling novel, when it was released back in 1980 starring the one and only, Jack Nicholson, must have been terrifying to watch at the time. With the iconic axe through the door scene haunting film goers for years after, the sequel will have a tough job to live up to those expectations of things that go bump in the night.

Main character of The Shining, Jack Torrance, had a son called Danny who was but a young boy in the film. Now, he’s all grown up and exploring his past, his childhood, and what became of him growing up. The film see’s Danny, played by actor, Ewan McGregor, revist the very hotel his father lost his mind in. Remember the two creepy little sisters? They’re back!

Doctor Sleep appears to present an entire group of mysterious people with creepy powers that hunt people like Danny.

Doctor Sleep lands in theaters November 8, 2019
