There's not much that makes it a 'Must-See' movie, but there are a few elements that make it worthwhile.

Shockingly good, rich with psychological depth, meaningful characters, an exquisitely modulated tone and a few moments of riveting terror.

Doctor Sleep brilliantly bridges the disparities between both of King's source novels and Kubrick's adaptation.

"Doctor Sleep" can be overwrought at times, and you feel the length in certain spots, but overall it's an effective, engrossing horror film that adds new texture, depth, and wrinkles to something you already love.

Although "Doctor Sleep" doesn't quite reach the same height as "The Shining", this long-awaited sequel remains a decent entry.

Moving, exciting, and often scary, Doctor Sleep is the sequel that The Shining deserves.

The script, from the original novel by King, is an admirable adaptation marking another win for Flanagan.

Doctor Sleep is less a horror movie than a supernatural drama -- only intermittently frightening, but engaging and saddening. It feels like the deep dull pain of a slowly forming bruise.

February 3, 2020
A contemplative and terrifying take on good versus evil, with excellent direction and performances in a film about the consuming nature of life and time, and the evil that exploits it.

Mike Flanagan's cinematic adaptation of Stephen King's Doctor Sleep is visually-striking and beautifully made, but an insubstantial narrative stretched out to three hours sadly make it a film that fades from memory pretty quickly.

Unequivocally, the director's cut is a riveting piece of cinema which should be the version audiences see from here moving forward.

McGregor is certainly skilled enough to make Dan compelling, even if the journey and its twists aren't always embraceable.

This one might leave you a bit more energized and hopeful than the Kubrick film. Kubrick had no problem showing us what happens when the Shine goes out. Flanagan seeks to do the opposite: Maybe, the film argues, we'll all Shine on.

The cast was phenomenal, the story itself was just very invigorating and full of plot twists.

In place of what Doctor Sleep puts its condescending, blinded faith in, I sympathize with Jack, and Dan - or Danny - I'd rather cling to drink or ghosts.

Even if Flannagan is talented enough to master the dolley shots, zoom-outs and set designs, what's impossible to mime is [The Shining's] larger-than-life atmosphere, the overwhelming feeling that comes from great storytelling.
December 9, 2019
A very well-paced film considering the 40-year gap from the original...it really felt like a great complimentary piece.

I was really impressed. Cinematically, it's really solid. The acting is solid. Trim the movie 20 minutes and it's a perfect horror film...

This is the adaptation of a Stephen King book that we deserved. Also, it serves as an intense The Shining sequel. [Full review in Spanish].
