Stanley Kubrick’s take on The Shining is loved by many a horror fan (well, except for Stephen King).  Now its novel sequel, Doctor Sleep, is set to assail cinema screens.

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.
