Doctor Sleep (2019) 15
2hr 31m Horror
Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance meets a young girl with similar powers as he tries to protect her from a cult known as The True Knot who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.
Director: Mike Flanagan
Stars: Rebecca Ferguson, Ewan McGregor, Carel Struycken
A really good watch with some nice doffs of the cap to the original. Including a trip to the "Overlook".
Ewan Mc Gregor was his usual one-dimensional self but there were enough in the rest of the cast to keep you happy. Rebecca Ferguson stood out as a great evil character and possibly made the movie for me.
A good story that though long kept you entertained and guessing throughout.
A worthy successor to a classic.
