The secret of Doctor Sleep's success
Play episode · 7 min
This movie review discusses everything that made Mike Flanagan's take on Stephen King's 'Doctor Sleep' a success, with fans and the creator. Something Stanley Kubrick, was never able (or likely wanted) to do.

In 2013 Stephen King released the novel Doctor Sleep, a sequel to his classic 1977 novel, the Shining. In 1980 director Stanley Kubrick made the Shining into a film. However, Stephen King did not like it, especially some of the liberties that Kubrick took with the plot and characters.

So, how the hell do you make a movie based on a novel that’s a sequel to another movie made over 40 years ago, also based on a novel when the author of said novels didn’t like the original film, which is now a cult classic, and keep everyone happy? Check out the #MovieReview of #DoctorSleep to find out how they turned it around.
