Nov 13, 2019 | Chad Riley, Eddie Villanueva, Movies, Podcasts, Review, Spencer Williams, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers are back for a walk in the hedge maze as they take on a conversation of the sequel to 1980’s The Shining, Doctor Sleep. With it being one of the most anticipated films of 2019, the Creepy Compadres take a deeper look at Dan Torrance and his unique power in this Stephen King adaptation. But how does this film stack up as a successful follow-up to the 1980 classic film? Does the film suffer from a bad case of fan-service and Hollywoodism, or will we see a King adaptation clearly get the attention it deserves? Grab your popcorn and your notepad, and tune in to find out in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!
