Mike Flanagan has a damn near flawless horror track record so this could be something special.

It is an adaptation of the novel ‘Doctor Sleep’, which is Stephen King’s sequel to his novel ‘The Shining,’” said Flanagan (via Bloody disgusting). “But this also exists very much in the same cinematic universe that Kubrick established in his adaptation of ‘The Shining’ and reconciling those three, at times very different sources has been kind of the most challenging and thrilling part of this creatively, for us.”

As mentioned, King and Kubrick never saw eye-to-eye about “The Shining.” As you might expect, the author is a big fan of his original book, while Kubrick is a filmmaker, first and foremost, and changed quite a bit of the source material to better suit his vision of the film. So, bridging that gap between King and Kubrick required some finesse on the part of Flanagan, who had to have multiple meetings with the author to get his approval.

“We had to go to King and explain how, and some of that amounts to very practical questions about certain characters who are alive in the novel, ‘The Shining,’ who are not alive by the end of the film,” Flanagan said. “How do I deal with that? And in particular how to get into the vision of the Overlook that Kubrick had created.”

He continued, “And our pitches to Stephen went over surprisingly well, and we came out of the conversation with not only his blessing to do what we ended up doing, but his encouragement.”

As for how much of the Kubrick film is used in “Doctor Sleep,” Flanagan thinks fans will be very surprised by the answer. In the trailer alone, which features plenty of ‘Shining’ imagery, only the elevator scene was pulled from the original film.

“There’s only one shot in the trailer you saw that’s actually his footage, and that’s the shot of the bloody elevators,” said the filmmaker. “Everything else is us. Everything else is our recreation.”

Flanagan says that he and his crew spent immense amounts of time to be as faithful to the vision that Kubrick put forth in “The Shining,” even going so far as to get the deceased filmmaker’s estate to agree to pass along original designs.

The “Doctor Sleep” director says the film’s “intention was always to detail and reverence, and making sure that we were doing it properly, with the hope that even the most rabid cinephiles might not be able to tell the difference with some of our frames and some of his.”

Other than including various homages to the classic horror film from decades ago, Flanagan says that he also learned a valuable lesson from Kubrick’s “The Shining.” He says that “Doctor Sleep” will be the rare modern-day horror film that includes no jump scares, as the Kubrick original was able to haunt people without the cheap formula that is being used to death by now.

Even if you’re not super excited about “Doctor Sleep,” there is likely going to be plenty of film fans that watch it just to figure out every mention, Easter Egg, and homage to the Kubrick film. And that will likely fuel plenty of debate. Should be fun!

Hmm this seem like it could be something to watch. I didn't enjoy and still enjoy the original Shinning.

Just tired of sequels rehashing the same old sh*t...

I mean goddamn, they're even copying certain shots from Kubrick's film.

I'm also getting sh*tty X-Men vibes from this.

New movie based on the book Doctor Sleep which is the sequel to the shining. Obviously they will copy some shots to connect the two films.

You dont need to copy shots of the original to do a sequel.

Mind you, this movie could be good. Ewan McGregor's a good actor and the trailer is well done.

But there's too many callbacks to the original.

The music, the cinematography, he actually goes back to the Overlook Hotel and goes to the door that Jack destroys with an axe...

I've seen too many sh*tty sequels/reboots to get exciting for something like this.



Just fu*kin do something original.

The Overlook Hotel play a major role in the storyline. They kinda have to have callbacks to the original.

In any real sequel reference points to the original film are necessary... no way around that.


If u look back at other epic films where a sequel or trilogy is made and they stray far from the source material... or just change it up completely... they are all sh*tty movies or just box office flops....

Case in point...

Halloween 2
Nightmare on elm street 2
Superman 3
Basic instinct 2
Terminator 3 and 5
Grease 2
SPEED 2
MATRIX REVOLUTIONS
Blaire Witch Book of Shadows
Son of the Mask

The list goes on and on..all sh*tty movies that drifted from the original source material and were wack because of it..
