Johnny Smith, the small-town schoolteacher who spun the wheel of fortune and won a four-and-a-half-year trip into The Dead Zone. John Smith, who awakened from an interminable coma with an accursed power—the power to see the future and the terrible fate awaiting mankind in The Dead Zone.
The Dead Zone As a mob boss or a crook with an itchy trigger finger, Christopher Walken is one weird, scary bastard. But he might be even creepier when he’s saving people’s lives. In 1983’s The Dead Zone, based on a Stephen King story, Walken plays a man who awakes from a coma with powers of premonition. He has visions of tragedies just before they happen. Is this power a gift or a curse?
