Storyline Heading
Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrence meets a young girl with similar powers as his and tries to protect her from a cult known as The True Knot who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror - This long and fairly slow moving film is a many-years-later sequel to the horror classic The Shining, based again on a Stephen King novel. Unlike the first, this is not a haunted house horror movie and more of a supernatural thriller focused on psychic powers. Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, and young newcomer Kyleigh Curran are the leads; Jacob Tremblay only has a cameo, and an extremely disturbing one at that. Violent scenes such as those, language, drug use, and many scary images and scenes of children in danger make this not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Those who loved Kubrick's The Shining primarily because of its weirdness and imagery may be disappointed by the restraint and coherence evident in the sequel. Although Doctor Sleep is flawed, it's arguably the best of a surprisingly strong group of movies that prove King's enduring popularity...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good He twists King's sequel into something that's less about empowerment and more about overcoming trauma, reclaiming the darkest moments of your life. He makes major changes to the source material and comes out illustrating again what a confident, interesting filmmaker he can be.

NY Post Full Review
Good ...when it confidently hits its stride near the middle, "Doctor Sleep” is gripping. ...what everyone will be talking about after "Doctor Sleep” is the return to the Overlook. The movie skillfully builds to the tense final sequence...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average Given the difference in the respective stories' tone and themes, Flanagan's film would probably have been served by a more decisive departure from its predecessor. Like a traumatized psyche, it remains uncomfortably stuck in the past, replaying familiar events in an effort to empty them of terror.
