Growing up this was a movie that has played many times over the years, fantastic film.

Here comes my Sunday morning "See what movies are coming out coffee drinking binge".

www.youtube.com... sorry I do not know how to post vids still but the movie is called Doctor sleep. I'm going to say it's a sequel to the original as in the description it says Ewan McGregor will be portraying Danny which we all know is the kid in the original. Here is a quote in the description.

"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."

I'm sure many of you enjoyed the movie many moons ago so that is why I post. Would love thoughts and reactions to the trailer. To me it seems all the movies now a days try to over do it with cgi, which in many cases leaves plot holes the size of texas. But we shall see as this was one of my 1st child hood actual scary movies. Thanks for reading and hope you check it out and let me know what you think!

I never really liked the movie with Jack Nicholson. It's so far off from the book it's not funny. The miniseries is better. Speaking of books, if you haven't read Dr. Sleep do yourself a favor and read it. It's really good.

Thanks for the reply, I'll be honest and never read the book but I will look into the Doctor sleep one, perhaps read the original given time. Never saw they had a mini series as I don't watch a lot of tv. I'll google it thanks again!

Wouldn't mind a cameo from Jack, in the comments people talk about a picture, face shift, still froze in the labyrinth to him even being a bartender somewhere in the movie. Think that would be a good thing.

You might want to read The Shining first since Dr. Sleep is the sequel.

Here's the trailer for the miniseries.


Stephen King, author of the novel, didn't like the Stanley Kubrick version.
