As seen in the trailer, such shots as Danny Torrance riding down the hallways of the Overlook Hotel have been faithfully recreated to an nearly chilling degree. Now, the first look at the upcoming Doctor Sleep adaptation has been revealed.
King famously hated Kubrick's film adaptation of "The Shining" - in particular the liberties it took with his plot and protagonists - leaving Mike Flanagan with the unenviable task of marrying the visions of the 2 creative giants.

While the "REDRUM" message on the wall already existed in the books, the shots of Danny as child in the Overlook Hotel and of him peeking his head through a broken white door are clear references to Kubrick's version of The Shining.

The Shining is one of the most acclaimed horror movies of all-time.
"Yeah, I think you do", Flanagan said.
Doctor Sleep also stars Bruce Greenwood, Zahn McClarnon, Alex Essoe, Carl Lumbly, and Jocelin Donahue, and arrives in theaters on November 8, 2019. King's 1977 bestseller was adapted by Stanley Kubrick in 1980 for a movie that is now regarded as a classic.
