Doctor Sleep
USA, 2019 | Length: 152min | FSK: 16 | Director: Mike Flanagan Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Ewan McGregor, Jacob Tremblay

A monumental achievement of tension, suspense, forgiveness and sacrifice, this psychological thriller, set four decades after the events of Kubrick's "The Shining", combines elements of Stephen King's novels with the 1980 movie for a spine-tingling sequel that balances poignant themes with elemental terror. The film continues the story of Danny Torrance (McGregor), still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured at the Overlook Hotel as a child, who has since fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters a courageous teenager with similar psychic abilities as Dan, known as the "shine," who is desperate for help against a group of merciless beings who who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality. Strikingly shot, atmospheric, grandiose and welcomingly creepy... a shining example of a sequel done right.
