Mark Kermode Reviews Doctor Sleep

Back To The Overlook

Doctor Sleep, based on Stephen King’s book is out in cinemas now in the UK and US, and here’s Mark Kermode reviewing it for the BBC…

Struggling with alcoholism, Dan Torrance remains traumatized by the sinister events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. His hope for a peaceful existence soon becomes shattered when he meets Abra, a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine.” Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle the True Knot, a cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.
Initial release: 30 October 2019 (France)
Director: Mike Flanagan

Here’s the trailer for it too

  1. let’s get beyond the platitudes- this film was overly long , disjointed story line, tedious, boring, well acted if you’re looking for a fantasy film – neither lead actors carry any tension or menace
