Rated R for disturbing and violent content, some bloody images, language, nudity and drug use, the film sports a 77% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Doctor Sleep forsakes the elemental terror of its predecessor for a more contemplative sequel that balances poignant themes against spine-tingling chills.

Struggling with alcoholism, Dan Torrance remains traumatized by the events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. His hope for a peaceful existence soon becomes shattered 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 cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.
