The Corpse Club co-hosts shine on and head back to the Overlook Hotel for an in-depth discussion on Mike Flanagan's adaptation of Stephen King's Doctor Sleep.
On this episode of Corpse Club, co-hosts Tamika Jones, Bryan Christopher, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James "dare to go back" to the Overlook Hotel and share their thoughts on Mike Flanagan's adaptation of Stephen King's Doctor Sleep. Listen as the co-hosts discuss the film's unflinching narrative, harrowing villains, themes of addiction and redemption, divisive runtime, box office results, and its powerful performances from a cast led by Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, and Ewan McGregor.
The co-hosts also talk about how Flanagan was able to make Doctor Sleep a sequel to King's The Shining and Stanley Kubrick's 1980 film adaptation by blending together key parts from both renowned stories, and they discuss their favorite parts of the new movie's return trip to the haunted Overlook Hotel, where familiar faces wait to play with viewers "forever and ever and ever."
So, whether you're traveling across the country with your own (hopefully less evil) True Knot or you're just settling in your favorite chair while the snow piles up outside, shine on and enjoy a detailed Doctor Sleep discussion on this episode of Daily Dead's official podcast... just make sure your "steam" doesn't leave while you listen!
