‘Doctor Sleep’ Looks Scary but Is It Going To Be Good?

Stephen King is an iconic author for his disturbing, super-scary novels that have been transformed into some of the most iconic horror films of all time, one of them being The Shining.

Who doesn’t love “Under the Sea?” I have never seen The Little Mermaid and yet this song is so amazing and fun to sing that I know it almost entirely by heart. Especially the last, speedier section of the song. It’s absolutely brilliant and every time I hear it it reminds why I love Disney so much.
