    The Dead Zone is a fun supernatural thriller with Christopher Walken. The movie is thrilling and
    the plot is intriguing and original. The cast also has Martin Sheen who gives an interesting performance
    as a politician running in the local election, A+.

    By no means a bad film, just a disappointingly bland and superficial one.

    The Dead Zone does what only a good supernatural thriller can do: It makes us forget it is supernatural.

    It has some of that episodic ‘compressed miniseries’ feel which a lot of King pictures get stuck with (the book was later redone as a TV serial with Anthony Michael Hall) but still manages a lot of powerful material.
