The Dead Zone is an American film based on the Stephen King novel The Dead Zone, about a man who after a car crash gains the ability to see into people’s futures just by touching them.
This film was pretty cool, and the idea that Stephen King came up with was very original. It was also quite weird to see Christopher Walken as a younger man, as everything I’ve seen him in he is a wise, older man.
Anyway, this film is designed to be a horror film, but I wasn’t really scared at any points, which was a little disappointing, but the psychological aspects of it were very interesting, and that kept me intrigued for the duration.
Overall, this gets a 6.9 because it was very interesting, and also a really cool idea, but at points a bit too slow and boring for me.
