"Doctor Sleep" is an excellent adaptation of Stephen King's novel that manages to stay true to Kubrick's "The Shining" and King's latest novel. The tension is fantastic and the story plays out wonderfully showing us the trauma of Danny's post Outlook Hotel life while introducing a new character whose life will be invariably intertwined with Danny's

Whew! Doctor Sleep was a helluva film! Mike Flanagan's direction was perfection. It was smart and creepy and sad. I saw it on Friday and I'm still buzzed about it. The scene with the "Baseball Boy" was insane! Ewan McGregor was a good Danny Torrance. He played him equal parts broken and redemptive. Rebecca Ferguson was downright chilling as Rose the Hat. The standout is Kyliegh Curran as Abra Stone. She was great! This was a really good sequel to a great film.

Not a good movie at all. Parts of it were ok, but it was mostly just a jumbled up cheese fest.

Flanagan brings enough smarts and soul to the flawed, fascinating Doctor Sleep that he manages to escape The Shining’s shadow mostly unscathed.

Like HBO’s new Watchmen series, Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep doesn’t simply rehash its source material, and instead uses its characters, setting, and themes in smart and novel ways.

It doesn’t have Jack Nicholson, Stanley Kubrick or even much of the Overlook Hotel, but Rebecca Ferguson and other good actors provide some shine of their own in Doctor Sleep, a drawn-out and seldom pulse-quickening follow-up to The Shining that still has enough going on to forestall any audience slumber.
