The Dead Zone

The Dead Zone ★★★

cronenberg provides this with a solidly bleak, chilly atmosphere and walken is doing his rare lower-register tortured performance that's always a delight to watch but honestly king's material feels a bit lacking. i think de palma's the fury is a more effective and unhinged version of the psychokinetic curse stuff and as for the doomed existential romance/political angle... there's really just no topping blow out.
