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

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."

David Cronenberg, ranked (20 movies items)

" Stephen King considers this flick the best adaptation of one of his books to the cinema. No one but him have more authority to state that. Who am I to disagree? I just can say I truly madly deeply like The Dead Zone! First of all because we're talking 'bout a Cronenberg film. Then, my favorite actor - Mr. Christopher Walken - is in the main role, the hero. Two of my idols in the same movie. How can I be unbiased?! Brushing aside these personal issues, I honestly think it brings a very powerful "

Top 10 Stephen King Horror Movies (and a Bonus Gui (11 movies items)

" Only tangentially horrific yet thoroughly entertaining, The Dead Zone involves a teacher developing the ability to see the future after a car accident lands him in a coma for five years. Unlike those who squander their psychic abilities -- Miss Cleo, I'm looking at you -- Johnny (Christopher Walken) uses his talent to solve murders, save children from drowning and prevent a nuclear war. You're welcome. "

April Movie Journal - Xanadon't (34 movies items)

" DVD Purchase Among my favorite Stephen King adaptations, which seeing as this one's brought to life by David Cronenberg I'm really not surprised. Christopher Walken turns in one of his best performances in this easy to like film that has a bit of everything. Oh, and also I now have an even greater appreciation for Tim Burton's casting of Walken as the Headless Horseman in Sleepy Hollow. Good stuff! Featured List: Happy Vader"
