‘The Shining’ Sequel ‘Doctor Sleep’ Trailer is Chilling

Hello…Morning…Redrum returns in “Doctor Sleep.”

The long awaited sequel to The Shining is finally coming to the big screen with a first look at the ‘Doctor Sleep’ trailer

CelebNMovies247.com has the next chapter to Stephen King’s masterpiece ‘The Shining’—it’s the sequel ‘Doctor Sleep’ starring Ewan McGregor who plays an adult Danny Torrance. Continue on…

In the upcoming movie ‘Doctor Sleep’ Ewan McGregor plays an adult Danny Torrance, Jack Nicholson’s on-screen son in “The Shining,” in the adaptation of the Stephen King horror novel of the same name.

As you may notice in the trailer, Danny is still traumatized by the events of the classic 1980 film, he is battling a drinking problem and the emergence of strange, psychic powers. He then meets a young girl named Abra Stone (Kyliegh Curran) with similar abilities who is being hunted by a mysterious group that grows stronger by killing others with magical powers.

In the trailer Danny (McGregor) says:

When I was a kid, I bumped into these things. I don’t know about magic. I always called it the shining.

Many years later, Danny still sees visions of some of the paranormal terrors he experienced in the haunted Overlook Hotel from “The Shining.” The trailer shows flashes of the old woman in the bathtub of room 237, the terrifying Grady twins in the hallway and, of course, the blood tidal wave flowing from the elevator.

Danny also somehow gets transported back to the original movie to where he scrawled Redrum on the bedroom door, and he sticks his head through the hole smashed in the bathroom door by Nicholson in the iconic “Here’s Johnny!” moment.
