Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as The True Knot, who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.
Great story but could have been tightened up a little
It's not easy to review this film without giving too much away, as there is a twist in the tale.
It is part murder mystery and part family drama with some points teasing at supernatural goings-on.
We have a couple trying to get through a recent affair and their teenage son reacting very negatively. This gets overshadowed by some unusual occurrences in the house and a recent spate of missing children, which is being investigated by our poor cheated-on husband.
The film shifts entirely halfway through and we start seeing the story from another perspective.
Though the twist and the execution are very clever, the second half needs trimming. We are shown things that are somewhat unnecessary and the set-up for this act is a little long.
What could have been a great film is just a good one because of the overly long reveals at the end.
