STEPHEN KING'S DOCTOR SLEEP
2019, Warner Bros., 151 min, USA, Dir: Mike Flanagan

Based upon the novel by Stephen King, this horror thriller revisits Danny Torrance 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in THE SHINING. Torrance (Ewan McGregor) has come to terms with his childhood trauma – until he encounters Abra (Kyliegh Curran, in her feature film debut), a teenager with the powerful extrasensory gift known as the “shine.” She has sought Dan 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. Dan’s unlikely alliance with Abra leads to a brutal life-or-death battle that reawakens the ghosts of the past and compels him to use his powers as never before.


THE PREDATOR
2018, 20th Century Fox, 101 min, Canada/USA, Dir: Shane Black

From the outer reaches of space to the backwoods of southern Georgia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the PREDATOR series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before. And only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biology professor can prevent the end of the human race. Starring Yvonne Strahovski, Olivia Munn and Jacob Tremblay.


ROOM
2015, A24, 118 min, Ireland, Canada, Dir: Lenny Abrahamson

Kidnapped seven years ago, Joy Newsome (Brie Larson) has been confined to a small garden shed ever since. Repeatedly raped by her captor, Joy gave birth to Jack (Jacob Tremblay), who is now five-years-old and curious to learn if there’s a world beyond the room they share. Adapted by Emma Donoghue from her 2010 bestseller, this moving drama about the bond between a mother and her child, growing up and embracing the possibilities of the world is anchored by two of the most remarkable performances of recent memory.
