In the continuing effort to lend some attention to the horror side of the Pop Culture fence, there is probably no better figure to rally behind than the great Stephen King. His works are practically countless and now his bestselling book “Doctor Sleep” (a sequel to “The Shining”) has a film coming out care of Warner Brothers Pictures. The first teaser clip is available now and I’ve embedded some premise, casting and a couple of the “Coming Soon” posters for you to get more out of this narrative. Let’s get creepy….
Storyline: Years following the events of “The Shining,” a now-adult Dan Torrance meets a young girl with similar powers as he tries to protect her from a cult known as The True Knot who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looks interesting and was a little longer of a teaser clip so I will add some more to the mix this time around. It’s been so long since I’ve seen “The Shining” so I’d like to give that a once over again before I investigate this and considering that I don’t always manage to see the horror films in the theaters, I probably have a lot of time to get to it. Have any of you readers read the book that this one is based on? What have you heard about the upcoming film that interests you. Chime in down below in the comments section. See you soon.
