[Johnny is reading "The Raven" to his class]
And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting, on the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door, and his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, and the lamp light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor, and my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor, shall be lifted... nevermore.

As the opening titles roll, certain parts (or "dead zones") of the screen become blocked out, until the part of the screen you can see spell out the title "The Dead Zone." See more »
Christopher Walken is in the top 3 of my favorite actors and the dead zone may be my fave (not the best mind you, but my personal fave)... Walken gives a brilliant and believable performance in easily the best King adapted film... atmospheric and frightening it has an incredible supporting cast... Anthony Zerbe and Tom Skerritt are excellent! An absolute must see...
