Surprised at all the good reviews! I really disliked this film. The Shining did not need a sequel whatsoever, for starters. Despite some decent actors, I found this film trite, shallow, boring.

It was quite a gamble to make this follow-up to "The Shining", but I was pleasantly surprised.
Mike Flanagan had some Kubrick-size shoes to fill and I though he did a nice job capturing the mood of the 1980 classic. Ewan McGregor was superb as an adult Danny Torrance and the re-casting of Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall and Scatman Crother's characters was surprisingly accurate. Overall, it was fun to take one last trip to the Overlook Hotel.

This movie can be watched as a standalone, but having a little knowledge of the story/movie "The Shining" will help a lot. This horror is a little bit more on the fantasy side than true horror.

Pretty sound adaptation of the book. It's hard to see Ewan McGregor pulling off such a heavy roll, but he does so even with a spark of whimsey (just like Stephen King likes it).
The book was gracefully compacted into movie format, with so many subplots and recurring themes, that if you hadn't read the book, your experience is worthwhile.
Best watched at 2am on a windy night.

What happens if your hold is ready but you can not pick it up due to the closure? Will the dates be adjusted?

I don't think that this film can beat the Shining which created many original memorial scenes and can capture you. However, this movie is better than other movies in super-powers genre and it has the potential to develop a series of movies.

I really enjoyed this one. I have not read the book, have only read very few of his works; more of his son's work in fact, but I'll have to read this one now. The director could have, should have been totally cowed picking up where Kubrick left off though it would seem, he wasn't. The cast was great, especially Rebecca Ferguson! Yow!

I read Stephen King's sequel to The Shining years ago and was pleased to see that it was made into this terrific film. It matched the novel and certainly provided a well-acted, colorful and suspenseful movie. Be prepared to be scared!

Good sequel, more superhero movie than horror. Well conceived and directed "shining" sequences. I would suggest watching both The Shining movie and mini-series before this.
