Stephen King Story-Based Film Brings Back Danny Torrance as a Troubled Adult
Director Mike Flanagan has confirmed that the film will arrive in the United States with an “R” rating, content not recommended for children under 18.
DOCTOR SLEEP has officially been rated R by the MPAA for “disturbing and violent content, some bloody images, language, nudity, and drug use.” Sounds about right…
