Stephen King Requested That One Scene In ‘Doctor Sleep’ Be Changed Because It Was Too ‘Brutal’

It may not have lived up to its predecessor — how could it? — but Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep was one of the better Stephen King adaptations in recent years.

It’s hard to imagine the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse being better than the Oscar-winning original, which we named the best comic book movie of the 2010s.
