Storyline

Johnny Smith is a high school teacher in love with Sarah Bracknell, a music teacher at the same school. But Johnny is smashed up in a horrendous car accident and slips into a coma that lasts for six years. When he awakens, Sarah has married another man, while his once-latent psychic powers come to flower. He now has visions that reveal things from both the past and the future. And this puts him in the path of a serial killer. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

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 »

fast paced,but doesn't seem like it till it's over
13 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

this is the complete pilot episode for the TV show of the same name.it's surprisingly very entertaining.it's from the novel by Stephen King,and directed by Robert Lieberman.it's very tautly directed and well acted,especially by Anthony Michael Hall,who is the lead character.i liked his character a lot.he was sympathetic and likable.this is one of the better Stephen King adaptations.it isn't necessarily original,but i liked what they did with the material.it doesn't seem fast paced while you're watching it,but it's over before you know it.it is only 87 minutes,but it doesn't feel incomplete at all.the ending is ambiguous,but obviously there are more episodes in the series.for me,The Dead Zone is an 8/10
