Fans Think The Trailer For ‘The Shining’ Sequel ‘Doctor Sleep’ Looks Every Bit As Terrifying

Fans Think The Trailer For ‘The Shining’ Sequel ‘Doctor Sleep’ Looks Every Bit As Terrifying

Doctor Sleep, the sequel to Stanley Kubrick's iconic 1980 horror The Shining is due to hit cinemas later this year, but the teaser trailer is already freaking people out.

Based on the follow-up novel by Stephen King from 2013, the story picks up 40 years after the terrifying events that occurred at Overlook Hotel. The story follows an adult Danny Torrance, played by Ewan McGregor, the young boy from The Shining who possesses psychic powers, which he called his 'shining'.

Suppressed by his alcohol addiction, a grown-up Danny hasn't used his powers in years, but his recovery sees him freshly tormented by them. Danny meets Abra Stone, played by Kyliegh Currana, a young girl with similar psychic powers who he must save from True Knot, a group of quasi-immortals, who prey on children to remain immortal.

If the trailer's anything to go off, it's set to be a treat for those who enjoyed the 1980 film, as there's a ton of references such as flashbacks of Danny on his scooter down that infamous hotel corridor, the blood gushing scene, the creepy twins and the memorable chilling violins. There's also a shot of Ewan McGregor peeping through a broken door mirroring the iconic Jack Nicolson scene.
