Director: David Cronenberg

Starring: Christopher Walken, Brooke Adams, Herbert Lom, 

David Cronenberg’s The Dead Zone, about a teacher (Christopher Walken) cursed with precognition, is an altogether classier effort, and justly regarded as one of the best film adaptations of a Stephen King novel. The Region 2 disc from Sanctuary presents the film in a smart 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer, uncut (previous UK VHS releases had a minor BBFC edit), and with a full 5.1 audio mix (at 448kbps). 

The disc also features a commentary track (by Stephen Jones and Kim Newman), and the film’s theatrical trailer. A nicely illustrated 24-page booklet is also included, which includes script pages for a deleted prologue scene, set eighteen years before the rest of the movie.
