This is the first two episodes of the television series. They originally aired as two separate episodes, part two ("What It Seems") airing the week after part one ("Wheel of Fortune"). They were edited together into one movie for the DVD release and subsequent television airings. The movie eliminates episode titles whatsoever and is just called The Dead Zone. In the original episodic television airings of the second half of the movie, also known as "What It Seems", it included the show's normal opening credits and theme song. See more »
Johnny's hair changes back and forth throughout the movie as a result of re-shoots that were done a year after the original shoot. See more »
The straight to video version of the dead zone is a great movie provided you dont expect the whole plot of Greg Stilson in it. For time constaints and budget this flick only focuses on the Murders and how Johnny Smith has to stop the killer. Not as good as the origional movie but worth renting for a good scifi/drama. Highlights: anthony Michael Hall's Johnny Smith.
