Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep, is heading to screens soon. Eep!

It continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his eventful stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Life was going along OK, considering the things that he experienced as a kid, until he meets a teen who possesses the same extraordinary power that he does…

Horror specialist Mike Flanagan both adapted King’s book and directs, and the film stars Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran.

Stephen King has made no secret of his dislike for Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of The Shining, hopefully he’ll be happier with this one.

Doctor Sleep is set to make Australian cinema audiences lose sleep from November 7.
