A well-acted drama more eerie than terrifying, more rooted in the occult than in sheer horror.

The Dead Zone does what only a good supernatural thriller can do: It makes us forget it is supernatural.

It has some of that episodic ‘compressed miniseries’ feel which a lot of King pictures get stuck with but still manages a lot of powerful material.
