Doctor Sleep (2019)

Unread post by Krappy » 9 months ago

The film continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. 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.

Originally had a January 24, 2020 theatrical release.
Director Mike Flanagan confirmed in an interview that the film will acknowledge The Shining, saying: “I think you do have to acknowledge that. There is no version of the world where I am trying not to acknowledge one of the greatest films ever made. There’s no upside in shying away from that reality. At the same time, this is not The Shining. It’s its own story and in a very specific way. If you’ve read the book, you know exactly why it’s so different but it’s quite a tightrope that we’re walking I think. I’m having a great time doing it. I’m just going to get the movie out and then turn off the internet for two weeks and see how it all goes.”
Carl Lumbly plays “Dick Hallorann.”
Alex Essoe plays “Wendy Torrance,” continuing off her character and storyline from The Shining.
Bruce Greenwood plays “Dr. John.”
Emily Alyn Lind (Lights Out) plays “Snakebite Andi, a member of a nomadic psychic group who feeds off the ‘steam’ of those children gifted with ‘the Shining’.”
Rebecca Ferguson is in talks to star opposite Ewan McGregor.
Ewan McGregor is set to play Danny Torrance in the film.
Akiva Goldsman (Insurgent, Rings, The Dark Tower) wrote an early draft of the script.
Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Before I Wake, Gerald’s Game) will direct.
Based on the novel with the same name from Stephen King. The novel itself is a sequel to 1977’s The Shining.
Warner Bros. released the Mike Flanagan-directed The Shining sequel, Doctor Sleep, on November 8, 2019.

Doctor Sleep is apparently a cinematic awakening.

After attending an exclusive screening for the latest Stephen King adaptation ahead of its November release, critics have flooded Twitter with their thoughts on Doctor Sleep. So far, reactions are extraordinarily positive.




There’s plenty of callbacks to The Shining in Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep. There are also references to Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, cameos from familiar faces, and plenty more things to discover. No need to ask Tony for help; here are all the Easter eggs you missed in Doctor Sleep.



Doctor Sleep brings Stephen King’s novel to the screen in a way that both honors the author’s original version of The Shining and manages to reconcile it with Stanley Kubrick’s vision. The result is a film that’s a sequel to two stories at once​, with its own mythology and a multilayered ending.



You know that Doctor Sleep and The Shining are connected…but how? Well, you don’t need psychic abilities to figure that one out: Today we’re explaining the many connections between the two films, including returning characters and returning themes.
