Ep. 03-22: Dr. Sleep (2019)

Struggling with alcoholism, Dan Torrance remains haunted by sinister events he experienced at the Overlook Hotel as a child. While recovering and sober, he soon finds himself caught up in another nefarious plot when he meets Abra, a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the shine. Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle the True Knot, a vampiric cult whose members feed on those with the “shine” to sustain their immortality.

Episode 03-22 Dr. Sleep

Welcome to our third Stephen King film and a direct sequel to last year’s coverage of The Shining (1980). Doctor Sleep is a beautifully shot horror film that lives up to all of its source material—namely the King novel, and the Kubrick movie. Join us as we discuss the controversial development of this project with director Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House, … Bly Manor), Stephen King, and Stanley Kubrick’s estate. Listen as Johnny Has the Keys returns to the evil spirits that dwell in the Overlook Hotel and discover how they serve a purpose in the adult Dan Torrence’s quest to save a child.
