Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as The True Knot, who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.
Frank, an opportunistic insurance lawyer, thinks he's in for the time of his life when he goes out on the town to celebrate an upcoming promotion with his co-worker, Jeff. But their night takes a turn for the bizarre when Frank is dosed with a hallucinogen that completely alters his perception of the world, taking him on a psychedelic quest through board meetings, nightclubs, shootouts, and alternate dimensions. As Frank ping-pongs between reality and fantasy, he finds himself on a mission to find a missing girl, himself - and his wallet.
Finally a film comes along that's not part of a comic series, a remake of a remake, or jamming woke culture down our throats. Genuinely creative, well played, and an existential roller coaster.
Destined to be remembered for one of the more accurate representations of a psychotropic experience, it also charms with engaging characters you can relate to. Justin Long was a great choice for this role. It's a pretty fun ride, lighthearted enough to not be preachy in it's delivery of philosophical content.
Most enjoyable film I've stumbled upon in a while.
Watch with a group of friends who aren't "Babies".
