Doctor Sleep at the cinema on the 30th of October.
Stephen King is back in our cinemas two months after That, chapter 2 with Doctor Sleep, the sequel to The Shining. Ewan McGregor clashed with evil creatures led by the beautiful Rebecca Fergurson. A supernatural story as enchanting as brunette. Ideal for Halloween. PRBK was able to speak with director Mike Flanagan (The Haunting Of Hill House), and told us to have been trapped by Stephen King !
After The Haunting Of Hill House and Jessie (Gerald’s Game based on the novel by Stephen King), director Mike Flanagan has chosen to address Doctor Sleep, the sequel to The Shining, also written by Stephen King . In the cinema since the 30th of October, Doctor Sleep, is a success as enchanting as creepy. Welcome to the world of ghosts, powers, extrasensory, and haunted houses ! With Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars) and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible 5 and 6).
Doctor Sleep takes 30 years after the traumatic events of the Shining at the Overlook Hotel. Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) sank in the alcohol-and drug-seeking to silence the voice in his head, but also forget the murderous rage of his father. It haunts him all the more that it is itself subject to outbursts of anger. But when he meets Abra Stone, a young teenager gifts extrasensory, his old demons resurface. Because the young girl needs his help to fight against evil creatures led by a fascinating Rebecca Ferguson.
“Stephen King has me trapped !”
Director Mike Flanagan is a fan of Stephen King. “My biggest anxiety was to show him the film. All the more that this is the first time I met him in flesh and bone. He has brought a copy of Doctor Sleep at his home in Maine. I have been nervous for 2 hours and half the time he watches the movie. Fortunately, he liked it. At the end, he put me hand on the shoulder and congratulated me. I believed to fall in the apples“.
Stephen King is it as terrifying as his stories ? Absolutely not, we entrust Mike Flanagan. “On the contrary, it is incredibly funny and nice. For someone who writes books so horrible and so dark, it is full of joy. It is almost like a child from time to time. He had put red balloons inflated with helium, such as those of IT in my hotel room the night I arrived. I knew nothing about it ! I enter my room, it was dark and there I see the two red balloons (laughs). I totally freaked out ! It is so much fun and a little crazy, and it really is someone authentically nice.“
