ReviewSource DVD Times
Review In the case of The Dead Zone, this emotional depth is provided mainly by the exceptional performances Cronenberg has elicited from his cast, particularly the always-excellent Christopher Walken, whose sad, haunted face perfectly encapsulates the melancholy, the frustration and finally, the resignation of a man who, in his own words, "can't live [his] life". We completely empathise with this man who we know is still in love with a woman fate has conspired to take away from him, and who seems cursed by a supernatural power he does not want...if you're a fan of Cronenberg or indeed Stephen King, this superior chiller is a worthwhile addition to your collection.

Review "The Dead Zone" does what only a good supernatural thriller can do: It makes us forget it is supernatural. Like "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Exorcist," it tells its story so strongly through the lives of sympathetic, believable people that we not only forgive the gimmicks, we accept them. There is pathos in what happens to the Christopher Walken character in this movie and that pathos would never be felt if we didn't buy the movie's premise...They all work together to take a movie that could have been just another scary thriller, and turn it into a believable thriller -- which, of course, is even scarier.
