Creating a sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is a tall order. It’s a film considered by many as a horror classic. Mike Flanagan, of course, is no slouch. He’s delivered the horror goods with films like Hush, Gerald’s Game, and the TV series The Haunting of Hill House. From the looks of it, he might have another big hit with the sequel to Stephen King’s novel, Doctor Sleep.
Doctor Sleep releases nationwide November 8th.
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.
Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—daring to go back and face his fears, while reawakening the ghosts of the past.
Directed by Mike Flanagan, the film stars Ewan McGregor as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson as Rose the Hat, and Kyliegh Curran, in her major feature film debut, as Abra. The main ensemble cast also includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue and Cliff Curtis.
