    I did not know Doctor Sleep was a sequel to The Shining. It did start to occur to me as the movie went on but I had to look it up on the net afterwards and sure enough - it's a sequel. I have not seen the Shining so I will not compare the 2. I will say that this movie stood on it's own. It was very good. Despite the long run time it was cut just right if you asked me. I see there is a directors cut that is shorter. Not sure how that would compare, but the long one is fine by me. almost a perfect movie - I highly suggest you see it if you haven't seen it yet. Now I got to track down The Shining and see what that one is like. I hear it's pretty good.

    Awesome story telling! Didn’t feel rushed through the movie.

    Really dark, but really intense also. It's a great sequel to the Shining but it's also its own story a little bit. Rebecca Ferguson and the girl (don't know her name) are stand-outs but Ewan McGregor is great too. I would say this movie is a HARD R, unlike It: Chapter 2.

    Very weak story line, poor acting on some parts and and EXTREMELY thin relation to The Shining. One of the most drawn out, directionless & obscure movies I have ever seen. If you've got 3 hours of your life to waste, I'd recommend going to sleep instead of watching this.

    Overall I did like the movie. It was not Mike Flanagan's best work but all in all, it was good. I enjoy Mike's singular jump scares in each of his movies, but I think calling this movie a 'horror' is an overstatement. At times the movie was creepy that is true, but most of the time I felt I was just watching another episode of 'Supernatural'. The cultish bad guys seemed to serve as a way to tell Danny's story instead of telling the story of the 'Shining'. I do love the idea behind it and their powers that come with it, but I feel this would be better served as a kinda horror-ish TV show instead of a 'Horror' movie. I look forward to seeing Abra's story continue in the next chapter of this world, but hopefully as a TV show!

    The shining evolves into this weird mysterious power that can do anything and everything, bar prevent basic logic and plot armor. The vampire-esque villains, particularly the hat, are incredibly bland, ridiculous, and lacking in any thought of action. Forgetful and only worth watching to scratch the itch of a shining sequel existing

    Love love loved it!! It was great the content and connection to the Shining great the acting great even the length of the movie great! I enjoyed Everything about the movie and the actors. I look forward to possibly another! I was hoping for a second during the bar scene that Jack Nicholson could have done a cameo!! Darn! And I wish I had noticed the directors cut another 20 minutes!! Darn! We Really enjoyed the movie! The best movie I have seen in a Long time!

    Such an underrated movie. Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson really shine in this movie.
