DOCTOR SLEEP Trailer Released

Director Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House, Oculus, Gerald's Game, Hush) revealed the first trailer for DOCTOR SLEEP, the follow up to THE SHINING today on Twitter.

If you haven't read the fantastic book, you might not know that it's not a direct sequel. Stephen King's book follows little Danny Torrance into adulthood (now played by Ewan McGregor) as he tries to fend off a tribe that preys on children with the shining. The tone is radically different, and fans looking for a return visit the bloody madness of the Overlook Hotel will be greatly disappointed. There are no ghosts here, only very bad people who hurt children.

I have full faith in Flanagan to capture the spirit of the book as he excels in intimate stories of personal adversity, family dysfunction, and quests for redemption. It opens November 8.
