The Dead Zone
Complete first series of the supernatural television drama, based on the characters from the novel by Stephen King. Small-town teacher Johnny Smith (Anthony Michael Hall) is involved in an accident that leaves him in a coma for six years. When he wakes up, his mother has died, his fiancé is married to someone else, and they are raising Johnny's son as their own.
One of the very best Stephen King film adaptations, The Dead Zone is imbued with an ever-present atmosphere of dread. Shot in a permanently wintry Canada (standing in for New England), the icy backdrops are subtly employed by director David Cronenberg to accentuate the story’s fatalistic tone. Cronenberg’s welcome emphasis for the most part on psychological terror over physical shocks (something of a change of direction for him after The Brood and Scanners) is further enhanced by composer Michael Kamen’s marvellously chilly music score and Christopher Walken’s understated yet dominating central performance as high school teacher Johnny Smith, who wakes from a coma following a car crash to learn that he has been cursed with the gift of second sight.
All 12 episodes from the fourth series of the supernatural television drama based on the characters from the novel by Stephen King. Anthony Michael Hall stars as Johnny Smith, whose life is interrupted by a near fatal car crash that leaves him in a deep coma for six years. When he regains consciousness, he discovers that he now possesses amazing psychic powers; powers that allow him to see into the life of anyone he touches.
