Heeeeere’s Danny! DOCTOR SLEEP ‘Danny’s Journey’ Featurette

Movies In Focus has read Stephen King‘s Doctor Sleep – and while it’s not a patch on the mastery of The Shining, it’s still a fun read. 

I’m very intrigued about how director Mike Flanagan joins the dots between this film and Stanley Kubrick’s masterwork. It’s got a pretty impressive cast: Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, Bruce Greenwood, Cliff Curtis and others star. 

Check out this new featurette for Doctor Sleep, which opens in cinemas on 31 October 2019.

The synopsis:

Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality. Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.
