With nods to Kubrick's film, this is no nostalgia trip, but more like a last stand.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

...a better-than-average horror followup...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
November 23, 2019
Fans of King's work will take a shining to 'Doctor Sleep.'
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
November 21, 2019
The funny thing about Doctor Sleep is that it is not so much a horror movie as a good, old-fashioned supernatural thriller. It's more Dark Shadows than Halloween.

Most of the reasons Doctor Sleep doesn't work aren't really its fault.
November 20, 2019
If extremely good actors are doing strong work for roles that just kind of flop about like dead fish, is that actually a good thing?
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

[Doctor Sleep] works as an eerie ghost story and as a meditation on the life-long effects of our emotional wounds.
November 20, 2019
It balances those two books and the Kubrick movie really well to please movie fans and Stephen King fans.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

A misbegotten and mediocre sequel to The Shining.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 18, 2019
This movie builds a brilliant new narrative around the shine that introduces greater power and more supernatural elements.
November 18, 2019
Flanagan pulls it off, especially in the extended climactic sequence.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 17, 2019
Doctor Sleep might be the best film that Flanagan has ever done. It is certainly one of the best King adaptations ever made.
November 17, 2019
The sequel to 'The Shining', 'Doctor Sleep', is a terrifying return to the realm of gifted kids and the predators who prey upon them.

Underwhelming sequel.

Rose the Hat is an original and unsettling character. The other members of the True Knot are far less threatening, coming across less as avatars of unspeakable evil and more as burned-out roadies still following their favorite '70s band decades later.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 15, 2019
Summing up, the film offers a fresh perspective to the shining universe and will surely appeal to both new and old fans.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 15, 2019
Is likely to underwhelm ardent fans of the Kubrick film (which King famously loathes) and baffle anyone who somehow hasn't seen it.
November 15, 2019
Flanagan moves King's story along in fits and starts.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
November 14, 2019
I thought it was fantastic, and it made me want to watch The Shining again.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.25/5
November 14, 2019
"Doctor Sleep" is a worthwhile cinematic sequel, that improves on the source by refracting it through Kubrick's superior vision.
