Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep ★★★½

It's ultimately a good film but it dragged a bit too long.
I really dug the references to Kubrick's The Shinning but some of them felt unneccesary (like when they show that iconic "blood coming from the stairs" scene but it doesn't add to anything).
Also I haven't seen The Haunting of Hill House but I saw the trailer and you can really tell this movie is directed by the same man because they really look alike style-wise. Which can be a problem giving that one's a TV show and the other is a theatrical film. Ultimately, this films feels like a TV movie....yeah yikes.

Nonetheless it's well done, it pays homage to Kubrick's film nicely and for a sequel it really stands good on its own.
