Shot by Shot with the ‘Doctor Sleep’ Trailer

Mike Flanagan’s long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King’s sequel to ‘The Shining’ will send a shiver down your spine.

Clearly, Danny hasn’t forgotten about the Grady Twins, either. Nor should he have, as they’re a pair of creepy little scoundrels. As far as fan service goes, the trailer has hit all the appropriate high notes.

Syringes are never used for positive reasons outside of hospitals, are they?

In this scene, Abra uses her ability on a man who looks rather stunned. Her shining also appears to be stronger than Danny’s.

Something has pissed off Rose. Her eyes are glowing and she looks absolutely maniacal. Good job.

Cut to Abra screaming in her bed. Given that this scene follows Rose’s tantrum, perhaps both characters’ bad moods stem from the same source?

Danny slides towards the wall depicting the word that haunted him as a child. It’s time to confront his past.


Finally, Danny returns to the Overlook Hotel to find that the old place is a more run down version of its former self. That said, the door that his father smashed through with an ax as he tried to kill the kid and his mother is still there. Needless to say, that won’t bring back the fondest memories for our hero.

Overall, the trailer raises plenty of questions without revealing too many answers. Every trailer going forward could learn a thing or two from this one, and I can’t wait to see Doctor Sleep when it opens on November 8, 2019.
