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

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

There were two main reasons for seeing 'The Dead Zone'. One was for one of the most interesting and unique directors David Cronenberg, who may have pioneered the body horror genre but a good deal of his films are far more than that. The other was for Stephen King, who in my mind is the quintessential "horror" writer, not all his dialogue writing is great and some of his books have bloated moments ... read more

“There were two main reasons for seeing 'The Dead Zone'. One was for one of the most interesting and unique directors David Cronenberg, who may have pioneered the body horror genre but a good deal of his films are far more than that. The other was for Stephen King, who in my mind is the quintessential "horror" writer, not all his dialogue writing is great and some of his books have bloated moments but his characterisation is so vivid and meaty, the atmosphere of much of his work thoughtful and terrifying and his attention to detail for horror literature is unparallelled. Consider Christopher Walken a great actor too.

As far as Cronenberg, King and Walken films go, 'The Dead Zone' is one of the must sees, even if not perfect. It is one of Cronenberg's most restrained, and mostly co” read more

"12.4. Tallenne Uusintakatselu. Mulla ei ollut oikeastaan mitään muistikuvia tästä ja syykin paljastui - onhan tää aika unohdettava. Hyvin geneerisen näköinen King-filmatisointi jättää tunteen, ettei Cronenbergille oikein annettu mahdollisuutta toteuttaa itseään. Loppujaksossa hyvää menoa."
