The Shining sequel

Mike Flanagan‘s adaptation of Stephen King‘s Doctor Sleep is technically a sequel to The Shining – but that causes a problem. As any King fan can tell you, Stanley Kubrick‘s film adaptation of The Shining is very different from King’s book, which raises a question: will Flanagan’s film ignore The Shining movie adaptation entirely, or will the filmmaker reference Kubrick’s classic in some capacity? We now know the answer.
