The Trailer for Stephen King’s Dr. Sleep Goes Back to the Overlook Hotel for More Shining

Director Mike Flanagan has been making very good horror movies for years, but he was launched into mainstream last year after helming Netflix’s Haunting of Hill House series. Now he’s got his highest-profile feature yet on the way with Dr. Sleep. Based on Stephen King’s recent sequel to the classic The Shining, Dr. Sleep follows the grown-up Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) as he tries to live with the blessing and curse of Shining. (Spoiler: Things aren’t exactly going great for him.) Danny meets a young girl (Kyliegh Curran) with the Shining, and resolves to protect her from a cult known as the True Knot (possibly led by Rebecca Ferguson) which preys on kids with powers like hers. The trailer shows us that Danny is still talking to ghosts wherever he goes, though he also heads back to where it all started: the Overlook Hotel. Dr. Sleep arrives in theaters on November 8, and there seem to be plenty of ghosts that are not even hidden.
