Doctor Sleep takes us behind the scenes in creepy new featurette


The ghosts of the past rise up again in chilling sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep. Released this Halloween, the movie picks up with the older Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) as he grapples with his psychic powers while being drawn into a terrifying conflict with evil.

Based on Stephen King's bestseller, Doctor Sleep takes us back inside the walls of the forbidding, haunted Overlook Hotel. And the legacy of The Shining becomes very apparent with a look at this new poster – can Danny escape from the shadow of his insane father?

The film is written and directed by Mike Flanagan, something of a dab hand with supernatural horror having helmed Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House, as well as Stephen King adaptation Gerald's Game.

If you're brave enough, check out this behind the scenes look at Doctor Sleep, which examines the movie's importance as a follow-up to Stanley Kubrick's groundbreaking horror.

Doctor Sleep is released on 31st October, so tweet us @Cineworld if you're planning to watch it from behind your fingers.
