Critic Reviews:

I still don't know if "The Shining" needed a second act, but "Doctor Sleep" presents one that's fresh and unsettling enough to justify its existence.

Make no mistake—Doctor Sleep is an exemplary achievement in genre storytelling, and one of the most confidently crafted King adaptations of 2019 (which, considering the other King films released this year, is saying A LOT).

Doctor Sleep relies way too much on borrowed inspiration and eventually runs out of — pardon the word — steam. But this flawed hybrid and King and Kubrick still has the stuff to keep you up nights.
