On the 99th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock (our resident Stanley Kubrick expert) joins me for Doctor Sleep, the 40 years later sequel to the classic horror film The Shining. Based on a recent novel from Stephen King, Doctor Sleep and director Mike Flanagan tries to answer questions you probably never had about The Shining and expands the mythology in all kinds of new, unexpected ways. Puzzle pieces include Ready Player One, It Chapter 1 & 2, The Frighteners and the Twilight series.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Doctor Sleep and the movies we discuss!
Writer / Director – Mike Flanagan
Starring Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Jacob Tremblay, Emily Alyn Lind
