"Doctor Sleep (Mike Flanagan, 2019)"


  

          

I really hope this shit is good.

And I'm glad they changed it to be a sequel to Kubrick's The Shining.

I'm not expecting much from this, particularly since the book was a homerun that added considerable depth to the story, characters, and world of The Shining.

I have a sinking feeling that this is going to mute all the wrong things, Abbra in particular. I think they'll shy away from the more unsavory elements of adult Danny.

I bet they have some generic, soulless version of Crow Daddy, and Rose will be an overly campy Disney stepmother type.

I fully expect a generic, uninspired, neutered mess.

This needed to be a miniseries helme by the team that helmed the first season of Mr Mercedes.

if flanagan can work some of the same magic he worked during the 'two storms' episode then this could good.

i hope he doesnt spend the film trying to imitate kubrick.

I ask because the Doctor Sleep, while it certainly addresses the original, does so in a very focused and specific way. It's a sequel that builds on the original on key ways, but is still very much it's own story.

A major concern of mine is that this trailer places a rather large focus on the events of the original film, while the original is much more in the cut of DS.

So I'm just curious if your faith in Flanagan also comes with an affinity for the book.

They captured so many scenes that looked like the book sprung to life.

Can't wait.
