You can expect this lot from a David Cronenberg film: Great cast, great performances, great storyline and great blood/gore scenes. Sadly, The Dead Zone had none of the latter (except for the part where Dodd pushes his mouth in the scissors). I haven't read the novel yet and now that I've seen this, I intend to.

The thing with Christopher Walken movies is that you cannot watch them en... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Horrorfest (55 movies items)

"October 30-31 "The ICE... is gonna BREAK!" So I finished reading the book and when I started reading it around September I made a deadline to get it finished before this horrorfest ends and as you can see by the date, I finished it by the last minute. In a way this movie is better than the book. While the book tends to drag on a bit near the middle, this movie isn't that long so it doesn't have that problem. I thought it handled the premise very well, Christopher Walken was great as Johnny "

Movies the giraffe watched in 2015: April (28 movies items)

"First viewing - April 10th It's Walken & Cronenberg, do I need to say more? Eh, I guess I can. I've seen the hockey scene before on TV, but never got around to watching The Dead Zone until now. I've never read the book either, which worked in the film's favor since I didn't know entirely where it was going. In the end it's entertaining and worth watching once or twice, but I wouldn't call it one of Cronenberg's best films. That may be more to blame on King's story though than his direction, a"

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"Cronenberg fired a .357 Magnum loaded with blanks just off camera to make Smith's flinches seem more involuntary; this was Christopher Walken's own idea. Martin Sheen's character says he has had a vision that he will be the President of the United States. Sheen went on to play the President of the United States in the mini series Kennedy and in The West Wing. "

Walken through his movies (100 movies items)

"Directed by canadian auteur David Cronenberg, Walken is the protagonist Johnny Smith, which suffers a car accident and enters in coma waking up 5 years later. The movie script is based on the book written by Stephen King. Check one of his unforgettable lines."
