What is it?

The 2019 American horror movie Doctor Sleep (2019).

What is it about?

This is how Metacritic describes this movie:

Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace.

But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.”

Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.

Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose.

Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.

[Warner Bros.]

My Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched this movie at the very end of last year, it was not as good as The Shining in my opinion, but it was not bad.

One of my favorite characters was Rose The Hat and I was curious to learn more about her group of energy vampires or whatever they were, unfortunately you did not get to learn much about them, but some of my favorite parts of the movie involved the use of powers/shining (especially the dream-like or dream scene(s) that looked like something from a lucid dream) and the threat that their group presented.

I did not like the ending though, it was drawn out, and I did not like how a certain character went out.

The end,

-John Jr
