Movie Info & Cast


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.

  • When Dan returns to the room his family stayed in at the Overlook, he sees the bathroom door Jack hacked open with the axe and puts his face in the axed open panel, reenacting the iconic "Here's Johnny" shot. However, in The Shining, Jack hacked both upper panels of the door to try and get to Wendy, not just the one.

    • Abra Stone: You're magic. Like me
    • Danny Torrance: You need to listen to me. The world's a hungry place. A dark place. I've only met two or three people like us. They died. When I was a kid, I bumped into these things. I don't know about magic. I, I always called it "the shining."

While I am usually disappointed with movie adaptations of my favourite books, this one did not disappoint. I was amazed that they were able to cover and convey as much of the book as they did. Definitely recommend

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.
