Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and Jacob Tremblay are the stars of Doctor Sleep, a new horror movie based on Steven King’s novel of the same name.
Set decades after the events of The Shining (1980), a now-adult Dan Torrence meets a young girl with similar powers as his. Dan must try to protect her from a cult who prey on children with powers…
I’ve never seen The Shining and that’s mainly because it’s a horror movie and I’m scared. It’s not completely my fault though because at seventeen, my Media Studies teacher wouldn’t let the class watch The Shining because according to her, it was too scary. I myself had zero objections with her decision – especially since by that point, I’d already seen The Omen (1976), the film responsible for my general aversion to scary movies since the age of twelve.
As for whether I’ll watch Doctor Sleep? I may just. Especially if others find it to be less scary than The Shining.
The moments I like in this new trailer include when Dan says the words ‘The Shinning’ – the penny drops and I realise what this is.
There’s also my general happiness at seeing Rebecca Ferguson as a cast member. She’s been one of my favourites ever since Mission – Impossible 5, Rogue Nation (2015). As for Jack Nicholson standout star of The Shining, I’m not even sure he’s still acting but I definitely half expected that he’d show up in this trailer. He still might. Well, that’s assuming he wasn’t killed off; something I’d know had I actually seen the original movie.
Have you seen The Shining? Is it as scary as they say?
Zahn McClarnon, Bruce Greenwood, Carl Lumbly, Selena Anduze, Carel Struycken, Emily Alyn Lind, Jocelin Donahue, Nicholas Pryor and Selena Anduze also star.
