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

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. On paper, this sounded like a project with some great potential. Indeed, it was adapted from one of the better books written by Stephen King (I even read the damned thing later on), it was directed by David Cronenberg and the lead character was played by Christopher Walken. And, yet, e... read more

TDcore's Horror Journal: 2018 (50 movies items)

" This is one of Cronenberg's more accessible, mainstream films, but still a shining example of what a brilliant director the man is. Great praise must be given to the always amazing Christopher Walken as well, who delivers a pitch-perfect performance that is pivotal to the film. No one else could have played Johnny Smith as he does. The rest of the cast is utterly fantastic as well.
