We already let you guys know that one of Quentin Tarantino’s favorite films of the year is producer Sam Raimi and director Alexandre Aja’s Crawl. And today we have word that one of his other top 3 flicks of the year is Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep. Nice!
This update comes to us from Awards Ace editor-in-chief Erik Weber over on Twitter who recently spoke with Tarantino. Check out his tweet below.
Doctor Sleep currently holds a 77% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that read: “Doctor Sleep forsakes the elemental terror of its predecessor for a more contemplative sequel that balances poignant themes against spine-tingling chills.”
The sequel centers on an adult Danny Torrance who is struggling with alcoholism and remains traumatized by the sinister events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child.
But Danny’s hope for a peaceful existence soon shatters when he meets a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine.” Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle Rose the Hat and the True Knot, a cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.
It stars Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, Cliff Curtis, Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe, Jacob Tremblay, Bruce Greenwood, and Henry Thomas.
Doctor Sleep is now playing at a theater near you.
