Doctor Sleep (2019)

I watched Stephen King’s 2019 film Doctor Sleep, the sequel to the 1977 “The Shining”, on Netflix DVD. Evan McGregor stars as Danny, grown up since riding around the hotel, checking out room 257 and getting chased with an axe by his dad in the original. There are several flash backs to The Shining, which I loved.

The supernatural horror story is brought to life incredibly by “Rose The Hat”, leader of the True Knot cult, played by Rebecca Ferguson.

Wakey, Wakey! The REDRUM is back, the Overlook hotel and hedge maze all filmed in the state of Georgia; locations included Atlanta and St. Simons. In the area of Atlanta, specific locations included Covington, Canton, Stone Mountain, Midtown, Porterdale, and Fayetteville. The movie runs 2 hours and 32 minutes and I give it 4.75 out of 5
