And Johnny is in for one hell of a nasty shock when he shakes hands with potential senator Greg Stillson Martin Sheen at a political rally An intelligently paced and very well-acted film, The Dead Zone is also full of unpredictable plot developments.
Walken elicits great sympathy as the normal guy who rapidly learns that his new gift is actually a curse, and there are fabulous supporting performances from Tom Skerritt, Herbert Lom, Brooke Adams and the terrifying Martin Sheen. The film has several tremendous moments, but the climax in particular builds to an emotional crescendo. The premise of The Dead Zone is probably rather silly if you stop to think about it, but other than that it is a most impressive film - and still ranks as one of, if not THE, best adaptation of a Stephen King story so far.
