The Shining is easily one of the greatest horror movies ever made – and maybe one of Stanley Kubrick’s best films. That’s one of the reasons that we’re equal parts terrified and intrigued by the prospect of going back to the Overlook Hotel in Mike Flanagan’s highly anticipated sequel Doctor Sleep, starring Ewan McGregor as a grown up Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), and newcomer Kyliegh Curran. It’s a tough act to follow to be sure, but the talented cast combined with the Stephen King’s rich source material and director Mike Flanagan’s previous work (which includes Oculus and The Haunting of Hill House) is more than enough to get us to Doctor Sleep on opening night.
To celebrate the release of Doctor Sleep on November 8 we’re giving away some amazing posters signed by Flanagan and star Kyliegh Curran (stay tuned for our interview with the pair and full review). Contest details below!
Here’s the official DOCTOR SLEEP synopsis:
Doctor Sleep” continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran star in the supernatural thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.
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—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.
