    Doctor Sleep


    The sequel to The Shining first came out in 2013. It was very well received by fans of the previous book and fans of King in general, but personally I never expected to see it get a cinematic adaptation. Luckily for me, Mike Flanagan was up to the task.

And what's more confusing is that people keep calling It a faithful adaptation despite the fact that there's not a mention of The Wendigo, entire…
