    I'm a huge The Shining fan. Like I've probably seen it around 200 times huge. I knew I was going to love Doctor Sleep from what I read about it and was not disappointed. It's one of those movies that could've been 10 hours long and it wouldn't get old. Haven't watched the Director's cut yet so I will let you know. Picture and sound are excellent. Get this movie!

    This Dr. Sleep steelbook set is a great set, you get two dvds, plus a digital copy. The movie is ok. Being a fan of The Shining, I was a little disappointed. It was good, but too long. I found myself losing interest about halfway through, but regained interest towards the end. Still, it's worth a watch. The acting was good, and they did a great job casting actors who look like the actors from the original movie.

    This turned out better than expected. The first 30 minutes or so, I wasn’t sure. It winded up being really, really good. Great story and Rebecca Ferguson was awesome as Rose the Hat!

    Doctor Sleep pays homage and adds more to the story that was established in Kubrick's movie.

    When I was a kid, I saw a trailer for THE SHINING...and just the music alone scared the crap out of me. When I was older, I saw the entire movie, and it was even more terrifying. The menace, the nameless dread, the mounting horror; it's all the stuff nightmares -- the best nightmares -- are made of. I don't know how they did it, but DOCTOR SLEEP looks, sounds, and feels as if somehow, Stanley Kubrick came back from the dead and made this movie, too. The resemblance is uncanny. And speaking of uncanny resemblances-- No. I don't want to ruin the surprise, but trust me when I tell you... You'll know it when you see it.

    If you liked The Shinning, you’ll like Doctor Sleep, it’s very moving, intense and will have you in full suspense. Would I suggest watching it with your family? Probably not. It might scare the little ones a bit too much.

    One of the better film adaptations of a King novel

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 3 months when reviewed.

    The ever-beautiful Rebecca Ferguson and a favorite from the Fargo series, Zahn McClarnon team up to bring us some somewhat scary, but more so eerie/creepy moments in this adaptation of King's Doctor Sleep. For the most part, and with the help of Ewan McGregor who plays an alcoholic, grown-up version of The Shining's Danny Torrence, they pull it off. While Doctor Sleep is a rather drawn-out and, mostly, slowish-moving film, it still has enough to it, to not lose one's attention. The story-line is solid and engaging, although those unfamiliar with the book and looking for outright horror and gore, will find little satisfaction. There are a couple of scenes which can be construed as "horrific", but in my opinion, Doctor Sleep is not really a "horror flick" by definition. To me, it is more like an intense drama about good vs evil, with a couple of well-done 'end-of-life' scenes thrown in. :) What I most enjoyed about it, is that in this day and age where practically every story ever has already been made into a movie, this one's plot was just a bit off the beaten path and came across as slightly new and original in its approach, while still pretty seamlessly tying it in to the well-known classic: The Shining. If I had to add one con, it would be a somewhat minor one, in that, at times, the girl who plays Abra (Kyliegh Curran), who also possesses 'the shining', and who can communicate with Danny, delivers her lines in almost a stone-like manner, and at other times as if she is rapidly reading. It occurred one too many times, and I found that it took me out of the movie for just a bit. While good, the scenes leading up to the ending are a bit predictable, and the 'showdown' (remember, good vs. evil) leaves a little to be desired. For the most part, however, I can live with it, seeing as Rebecca Ferguson saves it by just being in it, and King and the creators do their best to come full circle. In short, like the entire film itself, it is satisfying-enough to where one can feel as if watching it, was time well spent.

    DOCTOR SLEEP

    Owned for 6 months when reviewed.

    No doubt about it – this is a spook story that is also accompanied by a sound-track that amplifies the spirit of each scene that is enhanced by 7.1 Dolby ATMOS. The sagas character is a bit strange and at times difficult to follow. As presented, the story-line is seemingly not-well organized and it lacks continuity or purpose except that it does put a scare into the viewer. The saga is staged in a series of Chapters that are both Titled and Annotated – perhaps the Directors attempt to add continuity to a disjointed story-line. The movies story-line is well acted by a troop of quality actors who told their stories well but the film is none the less not well organized. So, if you are into “Creep” then this film should be good one for you.

    An excellent continuance of the original shinning movie. All of the characters from the original and Dr. Sleep deliver attention grabbing scenes. With the flash backs for clarity/knowledge and the new footage blended seamlessly together to forge a suspenseful counterpart to the original Steven king masterpiece. Worth watching and worth owning. You won't wanna miss some of the things revealed in this movie as it pertains to the original too. Fantastically done . Received high approval from everyone I know that saw it. If you weren't aware what this was about or never knew it existed. Well nows your chance to relive and experience it as you never thought it would play out. Get the bluray and watch the directors cut , there like an additional 30+ mins of scary footage to see. "Go ahead check it out"

    This movie was awesome and I actually enjoyed it more than the original film, strange as it sounds. The performance of the film in the box office absolutely doesn't reflect the quality of the film in this case (which happens a lot, unfortunately).

    The movie had Mike Flanagan's unique touch, so people should stop comparing it to Stanley Kubrick's' THE SHINING. Of course it's not going to be the same thing, they both have their unique twisted yet beautiful styles. Flanagan did a great job in bringing elements in both the book and the previous movie together in harmony in DOCTOR SLEEP. The plot is also very compatible with the The Shining one and it all ties together very nicely. The plot is chilling and dark, especially that one scene that I'm sure no one will ever forget and the acting is on point. In conclusion, because I don't want to spoil, Doctor Sleep is an amazing movie! I would totally recommend it!!

    A sequel worthy of highest praise

    This film has a creepiness factor that is not found in most current offerings. I saw this film when it was at the theater and even with morons to the right of me on their smart phone and another idiot getting a phone call in the row in front me, this film still gave me a most enjoyable creepout that I haven't experienced since Silence of the Lambs. All performances are brilliant and the recreation of the Overlook in disrepair was spot on. Many things to look for in almost every scene from start to finish. Old favorites from The Shining are here. The eerie but beautiful Wendy Carlos score is also here. The "feel" of the first film as well as Stanley Kubric's film style are also here. This blu ray has atmos sound (excellent), great video quality and lots of extras. See if you recognize who plays Jack Torrance without help from the credits or extras...I was floored! Great film. Oh, my days of going to the theater are way over. Shame on all of you who ruin any film (or any performance) with your addiction to the evil electronic zombifiers known as Smart? phones!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Doctor Sleep

    One of my favorite movies of this genre...horror. Definitely not for kids. It's an adult tale that will take you into a sinister world of a group of cult worshippers that use children to extend their lives. Rebecca Ferguson is their leader and her performances continue to impress. Ewan McGregor plays the lead, Danny, whose destiny will lead him against the cult worshippers and whose background in the Shining will figure prominently in this film. The real treat is the return to The Overlook hotel from The Shining and it's cast of spirits. Buckle up it's going to be a bumpy ride!

    Really Good Movie

    Wow, just finished watching Doctor Sleep and it was really a good movie! Much better than I thought it would be. I loved the tie-ins and flashbacks to The Shining. The little girl Abra Stone played by an AMAZING young actress named Kyliegh Curran really did an incredible job, honestly I'd say she stole the show. There were some scenes that I, at first, thought they had taken directly from The Shining but they actually re-created them in this movie. Very well done. Had me completely fooled. The attention to detail was mind blowing and showcased the skills of both the director and the actors/actresses. There was one scene that really bothered me and I felt could have been done in a different way and still got the point across. Without giving anything away, it was a scene involving extreme child violence and for me it really ticked me off! It almost made me stop watching but fortunately I continued. The Shining is a great classic and honestly didn't need a sequel but Doctor Sleep is a welcome addition and one I do recommend a watch.

    A Fitting Sequel to Both the Novel and Film

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    How does one craft a forty year-later sequel to what is widely considered one of if not the greatest horror film of all time that is also based on a sequel novel by an author that didn't appreciate the aforementioned film adaptation? In other words, how does one approach making a film based on a book that is the sequel to the original source material as well as being a sequel to the film adaptation that the author of both novels didn't care for? Tricky, right? Complicated? Complex? Beyond difficult? Sure, it's all of these things and while I've not read any Stephen King in some time (we're talking probably high school) and wasn't aware the master of horror had penned a sequel to The Shining in 2013 it seems inevitable still that this is where we are six years later with the one hundred and fifty-two minute Doctor Sleep. In the same amount of time since King's follow-up was released, writer/director Mike Flanagan burst onto the scene with a feature length adaptation of his short film, Oculus, that paved the way for him to become Netflix's go-to guy for original horror content as the filmmaker not only produced original films for the streaming service like Before I Wake and Hush, but also got his feet wet with another King adaptation in 2017's Gerald's Game then going on to oversee the wildly successful TV series, The Haunting of Hill House, that premiered to rave reviews last year. This is all to say that Flanagan has developed a style all his own and more importantly-a penchant for gauging the type of scares and imagery to best represent the horrors of a given story-meaning he's able to grasp the characters and their circumstances in a way where the scares aren't for the sake of the genre, but are in fact appropriate and even further, indicative, of the type of narrative being disclosed. Flanagan does this through soft, but illuminating character moments in which he latches onto certain aspects of an individual bound to serve a significant role in the story he's telling and then track the arc of said character trait through the more genre-specific events that naturally tend to enlighten the character to this side of themselves they may have either not previously considered or wanted to face in ways that are emotionally compelling and thematically resonant. Thus is the case with adult Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) in Doctor Sleep as Flanagan's now distinctive approach blends with the style of Stanley Kubrick's 1980 film and the tone of King's writing to create a well-rounded, expertly balanced yet equally effective journey that is both everything fans of the original film might have hoped for as much as it is wholly its own endeavor; a bridge between who we were meant to be, who we become and the resilience necessary to counteract the detrimental and absolve one's self of their past in order to continue to shine.

    I could not imagine another Shining movie being good at all. This was such an unexpected storyline, however. It really stands on it's own as a pretty good movie, but gets even better with the tie-ins to the original.
