Warner Bros. released the final trailer for Doctor Sleep this weekend and I gotta say it looks pretty damn good.
I like that its a solid mix of as both Stephen King and Stanley Kubrick‘s versions of The Shining.Mike Flanagan is no stranger to horror or King adaptations, and I like that he’s taken this route with the film even though King isn’t a fan of Kubrick’s take on his novel.
I kinda thought Ewan McGregor was an interesting choice to play the older Danny Torrance, but he really has me sold based on the trailers. he does a great job of portraying the trauma of addiction.
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 shines in theaters November 8, 2019.
