Film Review: Doctor Sleep (2019)

11.9.19

It’s been a long while since this blog site posted a film review and I decided to do a review courtesy of Mr. H Reviews. He is this British dude I follow on YouTube who not only does movie reviews, but also news on upcoming film trailers, franchise discussions, and other things. Here he does a film review of Doctor Sleep, starring Ewan McGregor. Doctor Sleep is based on a novel by Stephen King, which is a sequel to his 1977 novel The Shining. I found a small description of the film…

Struggling with alcoholism, Dan Torrance remains traumatized by the sinister events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. His hope for a peaceful existence soon becomes shattered when he meets Abra, a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine.” Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle the True Knot, a cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.

Two reviews, one with spoiler, one with non-spoilers.

 

I hope you enjoyed the review. The film is in theaters. More film reviews to come!
