Doctor Sleep, the sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is giving the original film a run for its money with horror, as Ewan McGregor takes on the next film in the Stephen King adaptation roster.
The killing spree at the Overlook is simply the backdrop to Doctor Sleep’s story, which follows a grown Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor), an alcoholic whose attempt to get sober unlocks his dark, supernatural gifts once more. Working in a hospice, Danny meets Abra Stone (Kyleigh Curran), a young girl who also has “the shining”. Together, the pair combine their powers in order to find a cult named The True Knot, which feeds off the life force of children.
Doctor Sleep is set for release on October 31st in the UK, and November 8th in the US.
