Stephen King, master of horror, has crafted some of the most iconic phrases in the genre. Few are more recognizable than "redrum" and Jack Nicholson's "Here's Johnny" from King's 1977 novel The Shining and the 1980 film adaptation of directed by Stanley Kubric. Now, King has just announced that fans are in for more Shining-style horror with his nearly completed sequel, Dr. Sleep.
Horror-lovers should prepare themselves for the next adventure featuring Danny Torrance. The clarivoyant is all-grown up and now treats the terminally ill helping them die painlessly. (We give Danny big props for coming out of his Overlook Hotel experience still functional, because we're still scared and we were only reading the book!) In this new story Danny becomes entangled in a web of nomadic people called “The Tribe” that feed on psychic energy.
