I read Doctor Sleep a few years ago and liked it okay. Maybe the movie won’t suck, I dunno. It’s somewhat reassuring that the director is Mike Flanagan, the same guy who helmed Gerald’s Game and The Haunting of Hill House for Netflix. There’s already a backlash on the Internet (because of course there is) for leaning heavily into Kubrick’s film – but I get it.
Me? I’m cautiously optimistic.

How bad can it be, right? I heard the kid from the original now teaches at a community college and had no idea they were using him in the new movie. Trivia!
Looks ok, but soooooo out on pseudo-reboots and repurposed original material. No thanks.
(If you need me I’ll be quietly waiting for the release of Napoleon that Kubrick never got around to filming)
Did you ever grab that coffee table book?
I sent it to Austin’s Last Angry Man for his birthday and I think he loves me.
