Doctor Sleep Review: A Horror Movie That’s Not a Horror Movie


Hello netizens and Welcome back to Rovie Meviews And today We’re going to review one of the most-anticipated Scary movies of November 2019 Doctor Sleep This movie is the sequel to Stephen King’s novel Back in 1977 The Shining Despite the title It wasn’t a happy movie with unicorns Sunshine And rainbows And world peace It was a story about a family of three Checking into a hotel with horrifying consequences At the end of The Shining Only the son Danny Torrance Managed to survive the ordeal Decades after the first movie Dr Sleep shows a grown up Danny Making his way through real life With an emphasis on real It shows a realistic side of what happens to a person After meeting the paranormal You don’t just bounce right up And become one of the four gang members Running around touting backpacks and guns You drink Sleep around And then, you steal money from the girls you sleep with Then, someone comes along And give you a reason to really live A little girl by the name of Abra Who, just like the Abra in Pokemon Has strong psychic abilities Abra caught the attention of a group of carnivorous steamy vampires When she witnessed a murder And she needed his help to survive The group and their powerful villainess A villainess who has no difficulties getting people to join Because for one She’s smoking hot I’d totally join the cult if I could Two She can give you immortality This movie is complicated When we first heard the title, we’re like Wait Another Marvel superhero Whose superpower is to sleep around? Then we checked out the synopsis and go Ohhhh, it’s an American Horror Film That anticipation lasted until we got into the movie proper And realised We got it wrong again What’s the premise of a horror movie? There’s no good and evil Only pure evil For Dr Sleep It’s angled more like a thriller or superhero movie Where there’s a clear line between good and evil Plus, for a self-proclaimed horror film There is very little ghost or monsters on human action Mostly human on human The jumpscares that are far and few between are great The storyline is interesting and the pacing of the film is top-notch But if you were to go in expecting to watch a horror movie And scare yourself half to death You’re going to be in for a huge disappointment And the numbers reflect that When Warner Brothers released Dr Sleep They had already quietly commissioned a script for a sequel Unfortunately Whether it will become a reality remains uncertain Given how the movie started badly With $14.1 million at the box office for the first weekend Far below the projected amount The Shining opened between $25 and $50 million If you can get past the horror movie bias It’s a great movie With 79% on the Tomatometer And 90% based on the audience review on Rotten Tomatoes A disclaimer though If you’re someone who’s a fan of the book You’re going to be unhappy with the movie The movie attempted to address different parts of the novel As best as it could But 134 minutes Is just too short for them to address everything For example Dr Sleep is the title of the movie Yet there’s only a really short scene Explaining how this title came to be So chances are If you’re not familiar with the novel Or you’ve never done as much research on the movie You might just miss it For us The movie got a three out of five goody thumbs up But if it was to be pitched as a thriller instead It will get a four out of five But do you know what makes the movie even creepier? It’s inspired by a real hotel The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park Is known as one of the most haunted places in America The bartender scene really happened to Stephen King While he was staying at the hotel with his wife back in 1974 And after that He had a nightmare in his room In room 217 But now you know why Asians have this belief of Knocking on doors at hotel rooms Before entering for the first time You want the spirit to be happy Not angry With that said Have you caught the movie yet? Let us know what you think And remember Always check your hotel reviews online before booking Or you might just end up in your own personal version Of The Shining and Dr Sleep
