DOCTOR SLEEP is a horror thriller in which people with special powers are preyed upon by a sinister group seeking eternal life.

Violence

Scenes include shootings and stabbings with resulting bloody detail. In one sequence a child is murdered in order to obtain a fantastical substance. Gory moments include a woman pulling her trapped hand free from a drawer, tearing her flesh in the process.

Threat and horror

Sequences include supernatural occurrences, people suffering from nightmares and visions, and spectral entities including one in the form of the decomposing corpse of a nude woman. There is also a sequence in which a child is abducted, bound and tied to stakes before being murdered.

Language

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k') and milder terms including 'bitch', 'bullshit' and 'asshole'.

A brief scene of cocaine snorting also occurs, along with undetailed references to an older man seeking out underage girls.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
