    Doctor Sleep works by not trying to be The Shining 2.0. It does get a little in your face with the Shining fan service towards the end, but it does a great job at telling its own, unique story. This isn't a slow building horror like its predecessor but more of an adventure/thriller with moments of true horror. Ewan McGregor does fantastic as the relatable Danny Torrence and it works well as a follow up on his story while introducing an interesting new character.

    Ridiculous premise. I wouldn't recommend it if you enjoyed The Shining in anyway shape or form.

    This movie is underrated. The Aesthetics are amazing and the story is so empowering. A must see.

    So incredibly boring. Saw it at the theater and really wish I didn't spend my money on it.

    Not as good as The Shining (obviously), but I'm glad I watched it. Seeing Danny as an adult going through these problems and having to fight other people with powers was interesting. I also like Abra, the girl who shares the same power as him. It was a nice relationship. The only thing I disliked were the re-shoots of classic scenes from the first movie with new actors. They all look similar to the original actors, but not enough, and the scenes just don't hit as hard. But the rest of it was intriguing. I wanted to know more about how this world works

    One of the most underrated films of last year. I love the sentimental value of the title. 9/10. ("Why won't the doctor sleep with me?!" made tears stream down my face.) Nah, that was a joke in parenthesis there.

    Riveting. Mike Flanagan really brought it all together. After renting this, I'm buying the directors cut to add to my collection. Bravo!

    It blows my mind this got such positive reviews. The villain wears a magician hat while vaping into people's mouths. Dog trash

    Absolutely excellent follow up to The Shining but a good movie on its own.
