Has anyone seen Doctor Sleep? It's a sequel to The Shining. I expected it to be shit but I really enjoyed it.
Big fan of Ewan McGregor. I would watch it for him alone but i liked the villains in the book especially 'Irish Rose'.

She was amazing, best part about the film. I loved the villains storyline.
Excellent movie, best horror i have seen in a long while. Very true to the book and it's spirit, goes to some lengths to include small details from the book to make it all well fleshed out. The theme is very dark (we are talking about people who feed on children's souls to stay immortal the contrast is with Danny who helps the elderly who are dying find peace at the end of their lives) and i was surprised they even included the scene of the child being tortured to death. Sometimes Hollywood gives us a pleasant surprise and this movie was it.

Some really good special effects too, low on jump scares big on atmosphere and characters.

One of the most haunting scenes ever. Very relevant too in light of Pizzagate, Epstein's island and Satanic Ritual Abuse etc.
You read my mind. I hear they are looking into making Stephen King's Revival into a movie too. They should hire a lot of the same people who made this one. Revival's ending is very dark - they must preserve that.
