Film Review: “Doctor Sleep” (2019)

“Did anyone promise you would live forever?”

An excellent dark fantasy that stands on the shoulders of a horror masterpiece, reveling in its legacy and aesthetic while still creating something new, if not masterful.

My VHS cover pull-quote: “Spoilers, but Jacob Tremblay shows up and is almost immediately ritually murdered by being carved open and its one of the most effective ritual child murders I’ve seen because he is good at acting and really sells that he’s being ritually murdered.”
