The Shining is one among my favourite horror tales of all time. I’m an enormous fan of Stephen King’s e book and Stanley Kubrick’s movie can be a horror masterpiece.
King ended up writing a sequel to the novel referred to as Physician Sleep and that story is being tailored for the large display screen because of director Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill Home). I really actually preferred the e book and I believe it’ll make for a implausible film.
Physician Sleep takes place a number of years after the occasions that passed off on the Overlook Lodge. It focuses on Jack’s son Danny who’s now a middle-aged man. He’s nonetheless traumatized by what occurred on the resort all these years in the past, and he all through his life has needed to cope with anger administration and alcoholism points. Nonetheless, in an effort to get his life again collectively, he offers up ingesting and settles down in a small city in New Hampshire. It’s at this level in his life the place his psychic skills begin to resurface and he develops a psychic hyperlink with a 12-year-old woman named Abra Stone. Seems this woman’s life is being threatened by a tribe of paranormals who suck the vitality from folks. They’re led by a person named Rose the Hat and Danny has to save lots of her from them.
Through the WB presentation at CinemaCon we received to see our first footage from the movie. Whereas it wasn’t a lot, it was nonetheless sufficient to get me and the remainder of the viewers pumped up about seeing the film.
There was a great quantity of behind-the-scenes footage that includes Ewan McGregor as an older Danny Torrance and it appears to be like like he’s been by a variety of loopy tough time in his life. He has a hardened gritty look to him. It’s defined that the story particularly focuses on how Danny offers with “that horrible expertise from his childhood.”
Within the footage shared we additionally noticed a automobile driving by a forest which is paying homage to the traditional opening sequence from the unique Shining movie. We additionally see a gaggle of individuals gathered round a campfire which is probably the tribe of paranormals who use their “shine” to suck the vitality from folks.
We additionally see Danny encounter a younger woman, who’s probably Abra Stone, the younger psychic woman performed by Kyliegh Curran who has a psychic reference to Danny. Then there’s a shot of a girl strolling within the woods towards somebody whereas holding a needle behind her again. I think about this could possibly be Rose the Hat (Rebecca Ferguson), who’s the principle villain of the movie.
The ultimate scene we noticed featured Danny standing in a grimy lavatory and when he appears to be like within the mirror he sees the phrase “Redrum” in it.
It was additionally famous that Stephen King may be very concerned within the movie manufacturing, in order that’s good to know! The opposite forged members embrace Carl Lumbly, Alex Essoe, Zahn McClarnon, and Bruce Greenwood.
Physician Sleep opens on November eighth, 2019.
