The Dead Zone is a great supernatural horror-thriller with excellent acting and believable characters. The story surrounds Johnny Smith who’s awoken from a lengthy coma to find that he has the powers to see visions of the future.
I loved Christopher Walken’s character in this because he wasn’t one dimensional. Yes the viewers know that ultimately Johnny will have to use his powers to prevent terrible events but there’s a dichotomy between Johnny’s intentions to fight crime vs his intentions to pick up where he left off with Sarah.
Viewers sort of unconsciously see this tipping point where Johnny has to accept his fate and the events following lead up to his ultimate sacrifice for humanity. There’s not that much traditional horror here so I won’t toss this to the reddit masses to tear apart but nevertheless it’s worth checking out.
I don’t really have too much else to say about this movie; Steven King story, cool shit.
