When they find my body, it will be in front of my computer with this video playing on an endless loop.



You guys need to get on the Charly Bliss train. JB in particular, they will be your new favorite band, guaranteed.

There's a press screening in 3 days. Not sure if there will be an embargo, though.

Awesome! Thanks guys. Official release date is August 27th, but Kickstarter backers get it 3 months early so plz share and play with other film nerds.

And let me know what you think! I worked on this every day for the last 15 months (and counting) so it's really crazy and surreal to have it out there finally.

Okay. But Gerald's Game by Flanagan is probably the best King adaptation I've seen.

context.

Director Mike Flanagan revealed (via BloodyDisgusting) that these are all recreations and not just a redux of footage form Kubrick’s film. The only image taken directly from Kubrick’s work is the shot of the bloody elevators.

Flanagan said his “Doctor Sleep” adaptation was made with “the full support of the Kubrick estate, who were willing to provide us with his designs.”

The director added that “Doctor Sleep” will serve as an adaptation of King’s novel that exists in “the same cinematic universe” as Kubrick’s movie. Given that King has long been outspoken about his dislike of Kubrick’s version of his beloved story, bridging the gap between the two visions of the story doesn’t sound like an easy task.
