Back in September, I shared what amounted to be the Final Trailer for “Doctor Sleep”, which is a brand-new Warner Brothers Pictures release that comes from the twisted mind of award winning scribe Stephen King. Though I was surprised that the film didn’t open up on Halloween, it is opening today in theaters everywhere so let’s examine the theatrical poster along with a reminder about the premise and casting.
Storyline: Years following the events of “The Shining,” a now-adult Dan Torrance meets a young girl with similar powers as he tries to protect her from a cult known as The True Knot who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Based on my schedule at the exact moment, it looks like I am taking a pass on seeing this one early in the run if I manage to go at all based on these constraints on my time. It does look interesting and creepy which is good since that is what people expect in a sequel to a film like “The Shining” but I am not up on the source material or remember much about my last viewing of “The Shining”. Hopefully you’ve taken some time to click the trailer posts because the “Coming Soon” posters are unnerving and I think a lot of you will enjoy them. That’s all I have to say about it and as I close this up I wonder will you be seeing this film soon or are also taking a pass. Chime in down below in the comments section below.
