The Shining Is Getting A Sequel And The First Trailer Is Bloody Terrifying

2 min read


The Shining is one of the greatest horror movies of all time, period. 

If you disagree, you can take it up with Jack Nicolson:

The follow-up to Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel has a lot of expectations riding on it to deliver in the terror department. 

So when the first trailer for Doctor Sleep dropped today we readied our nerves and our bladders (TMI?). 

The sequel sees Ewan McGregor playing the now-adult Danny Torrence, living with the torment of the events of his childhood. 

Now a reclusive alcoholic, he awakens his supernatural shining abilities once again as he tries to get sober. 

Danny's journey spirals when he meets a young girl who also possesses the gift. 

There’s plenty of throwbacks to original movie scenes, so we’re excited to see 2019 graphic renditions of hallways filling with waves of blood and creepy demented twins.

With horror maestro Mike Flanagan in the director's chair, the film sees McGregor joined by Rebecca Ferguson, Carl Lumbly, and Alex Essoe.
