Matthias’s review published on Letterboxd:
Works more as an emotional tale of family traumas than it does an outright horror, which is obviously what Mike was going for. So many shades of this in Doctor Sleep, proving definitively that this man has a distinctive style. Each episode masterfully crafts each character leading to them all having well paid off arcs (admittedly, I’m partial to Luke, but who’s really surprised). It was a great experience watching one of Jade’s favorite shows with her and getting to be sad with her and also talk about how we’d protect all of the kids. Mike certainly knows how to get the tears out of me.
