"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.

A slow start, but I think that's what made me care about the characters more and be impressed by villains. My only complaint is the last 5 minutes felt like forced nostalgia, when there was plenty camo's beforehand.

It's a verrrrryyy slow start, give it some time. once it gets started, it's a roller coaster ride. If you haven't seen its prequel "The shining " I highly recommend doing that before coming to see this. You'd understand many of the references made.

If you love “The Shining” as much I do then you’ll really like this movie. It’s got the same kind of pacing and it builds up to a satisfying ending. I’m going to go see this again and will own it on Blu-ray.

Dr Sleep was kind of like science fiction, as much as horror. Kids with special powers, like Akira or Looper. But it spent more time trying to be horror, so the sci-fi stuff wasn’t as developed as it could have been. Pretty entertaining and interesting plot, but nothing like The Shining film.

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.
