Starring: Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Cliff Curtis, Kyliegh Curran, Bruce Greenwood, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Carl Lumbly
Horror written and directed by Mike Flanagan which continues the story of Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor), 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Danny has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra (Kyliegh Curran), a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine”.
Instinctively recognizing that Danny shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat (Rebecca Ferguson) and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality. Forming an unlikely alliance, Danny and Abra engage in a brutal life or death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Danny to call upon his own powers as never before, at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.
[referring to Abra]
Danny Torrance: Just talk to me, kid.
Abra Stone: You’re magic, like me.
Danny Torrance: I don’t know about magic. I always called it “the shining”.
Danny Torrance: [to Abra] Now, you need to listen to me. The world is a hungry place, and a dark place. I’ve only met two or three people like us. They died. When I was a kid, I bumped into these things.
