Shining Sequel Release Date


By Robert T. Trate     September 19, 2012
Source: Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly has released the news that horror author Stephen King has a date for his Shining Sequel. The author posted on his website yesterday that the sequel will be released September 24th, 2013. The book will be titled “Doctor Sleep”.

Here is the plot for the new book: “The follow-up to 1977′s “The Shining” tells the story of a hospice worker who helps patients die painlessly. He comes into contact with a clan of roving, psychic vampires called The Tribe”.

Will this mean a sequel for the movie as well? With Hollywood’s trend of banking on established properties, it is only a matter of time. 

We, here at Mania, always thought this would happen. Here is a poster for a version of the movie we hope we never see. 

Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.

 Well, the good news is that right now Shia says he won't do studio movies (apparently going with artsy porn instead), so there's no chance of your worst fear there being realized.  Unless he changes his mind, of course.

Are people going to bitch about sequels to books too the way they do films?

Anyway I'd see a sequel if it ever got made but it isn't something I'm particularly interested in to be honest

I have'nt read anything by King in years. The last book I'd read of his all the way through was Bag of Bones and that was just meh. Couldn't finish From a Buick 8. His books have become a chore to get through so I don't bother anymore.

Psychic vampires called The Tribe...any relation to the vampires in Lost Boys:The Tribe?

 The psychic vampire concept has been done to perfection by Dan Simmons in Carrion Comfort and I recommend that novel to any interested.  Hollywood establishment should be trying to revive Dark Tower ahead of this.

I think the zombies in his book Cell were psychic as well.

 I've felt King has been creatively bankrupt for a long time.  He has produced some great horror classics, but he just doesn't seem to have the same mojo anymore.  

I don't have a problem with sequels to books, but this sounds more like an old episode of the X-Files.  Or, treading more into Dean Koontz territory.
