"The ICE... is gonna BREAK!" If someone told you they had a vision that the ice would break if you went skating, what would you do? Join your faithful Grue Crew - Crystal Cleveland, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they checkout the ice in Stephen King’s The Dead Zone (1983) directed by David Cronenberg.

Episode 153 – The Dead Zone (1983)

Johnny Smith wakes from a coma, only to find he has lost five years of his life since his car accident, and yet gained psychic powers. Foreseeing the future appears to be a 'gift' at first, but ends up causing problems...

IMDb

 

According to the 1970s Grue-Crew, David Cronenberg’s vision of The Dead Zone is one of the best, if not the best, film adaptations of a Stephen King novel. Cronenberg’s direction, backed up by a great cast, an excellent script, and a powerful score make this a winner in all aspects.

The Dead Zone is Bill’s pick and he label’s it one of his top ten favorite films. Crystal is all about Christopher Walken and she throws Brooke Adams some praise as well. The score by Michael Kamen is one of Chad’s favorites and he thinks this might be Walken’s best performance. Jeff identifies some scenes that were cut and is impressed with how the complex story in King’s novel is told so well in under two hours. 

If you haven’t seen The Dead Zone for some time, the Decades of Horror 1980s Grue-Crew think it’s about time you did!

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s is part of the Decades of Horror 3-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1970s. In episode 154, the 80s Grue-Crew takes a look at The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988), directed by Wes Craven and starring Bill Pullman.
