“Walking into this movie, it had a lot to prove, and I like it more than [Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose]. I think it’s a better movie than Sinister. I think Sinister is fucking awesome, so that’s saying something.”
I think Doctor Sleep is a really good movie that, of course, is not as good as "The Shining". But as a horror film, I was very very invested. The character work is super strong, it has a great villain and one of the best child performances of the year.
