'Doctor Sleep' Trailer: 'The Shining' Gets a Sequel

First ‘Doctor Sleep’ Trailer Reveals Mike Flanagan’s ‘The Shining’ Sequel

The massacre at the Overlook is only a backdrop to the story of Doctor Sleep, which picks up the story of Danny Torrance, the little boy with supernatural visions who survived the gory horrors of his youth.

It was rumoured that film would not be a direct sequel to Kubrick's edition of The Shining due to Stephen King's dislike for how his book had been adapted.

Synopsis: 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. Now, Dan is forced to embrace his ability like never before in a life-or-death battle against Rose.

As a result, Danny is forced to call upon his own powers and face the ghosts of the past.

You'd be "irrevocably scarred", too, if you saw this.

There's no doubt they are leaning in on the legacy of Kubrick's film here, with a number of precisely recreated scenes (the blood elevator is the only shot taken from the original film) and plenty of callbacks. "Everything else is us". Still, I loved Mike Flanagan's Gerald's Game, based on another Stephen King novel. "I don't want to spoil... what we've been able to revisit from Kubrick's world, but I can say that everything that we chose to use, our intention was always to detail and reference and making sure that we were doing it properly, with the hope that even kind of the most rabid cinephiles might not be able to tell the difference". If the finished film (in theaters on November 8) is as intriguing and as deftly executed as its first official trailer, Doctor Sleep will be joining the It franchise as contemporary high-class, high-performance adaptations of Stephen King novels, the sort that that were once relatively elusive for Hollywood despite decades of steady effort.
