Doctor Sleep (out Nov 7) is a horror flick that's trying to offer more than darkened basements, possessed kids and cheap jolts. Based on the Stephen King sequel to The Shining, it's an intriguing tale involving psychic beings, childhood trauma and a group of nomads who "eat screams and feed off pain". With lengthy dialogue-free sequences, director Mike Flanagan makes great use of music and sound. Grade: B+.
