Dan Torrance remains traumatized by the sinister events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child, spending his days self-medicating away the 'shine' with alcohol. His hope for a peaceful existence soon becomes shattered when he meets Abra, a teen who shares his extrasensory gift.' Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle the True Knot, a cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.

I loved this story. For an adaptation, it did the job. To tell the whole story would have taken a miniseries. As a fan for over 40 years, I give this a two thumbs up.

Really enjoyed this movie, probably because it is more horror-lite with few very scary moments, and gives a satisfying sequel to The Shining (a far scarier movie). Haven’t read the book yet so can’t compare it to that.

Not bad. Differs quite a bit from the book if that is important to King readers.

A very weak and unimaginative sequel.

I enjoyed SKing's early books, Shining among them. This worked well as a follow-up story. Some of the pacing seemed slow until I realized that this was part of the ambiance of the film. The young talent was that -- a talent and should go far in the industry.

I guess after reading the book, like with so many movies it couldn't tell the entire story and there was a lot missing. This movie also had to be a follow up to an American classic. I guess you could say it had a double whammy before it even was made.

It is a soft, slow pacing horror movie, a disperse suspense. Interesting connection with "The Shining" movie. Very diverse cast. Simple custom design and just fine for the time and kind of film.

I enjoyed this movie adaptation of the book, Dr. sleep which I also enjoyed. I felt it was close enough to the written word but just different enough to make it an interesting movie,

THE MASTER OF AMERICAN MEDIOCRITY DOES IT AGAIN....
(tells the same story with even LESS refurbishing...)
Stick with the original and you get less hip-sie vampire carny whosis nonsense... this is the "Vintage Vogue" of reboot film, throwing dollars into recreating the Overlook for the flashbacks rather than some filter and the prior footage tailored around close ups. McGregor still capable, the rest of the cast isn't too challenged by the "complexity of the characters"...
IF King was gonna go back and revisit his former work, like he's NEVER done that before, SHINING not the worst to go with, but does illustrate he's not the threat he once was.

Surprised at all the good reviews! I really disliked this film. The Shining did not need a sequel whatsoever, for starters. Despite some decent actors, I found this film trite, shallow, boring.
