Members of the horror community have been spoiled. With amazing box office receipts for films like IT: Chapter One and Two, and the 2018 HALLOWEEN, everyone may have just expected the sequel to one of Stephen King’s most heralded novels, The Shining, would have been a huge blockbuster success. That just wasn’t the case.
DOCTOR SLEEP was expected to make at least around $25 Million over the opening weekend, however, it only was able to garner $12.6 million.
Not one to rest on his laurels, King took to Twitter to voice his thoughts on the box office bombing of the rather critically acclaimed film.
Below, check out Stephen King’s response to a comment made from author Matt Serafini.
Agree. It's a terrific movie. Take a friend and dig the vibe. https://t.co/XFadkP8NIC
