The Dead Zone [DVD] [2002]

This made-for-TV movie -- which became the pilot for a television series that, like this film, was inspired by Stephen King's novel of the same name -- gets a glossier-than-expected release on DVD. The Dead Zone (not to be confused with David Cronenberg's 1983 film, also based on King's novel) has been brought to disc in a letterboxed transfer at the aspect ratio of 1.85:1, which has been enhanced for anamorphic playback on widescreen monitors. The audio (in English only) has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, and along with English and Spanish subtitles, it features closed captioning in English. In addition to the main feature, the disc also includes a commentary track with contributions from leading man Anthony Michael Hall, the show's creator and head writer Michael Piller, and actors Nicole de Boer and Chris Bruno. The disc also includes a trailer, photos, and a sneak peek at what's in store for the show's second season.

The Dead Zone: The Beginning
Take a terrifying trip back to the beginning of one man's waking nightmare as Stephen King's best-selling book comes to life in this made-for-television feature starring Anthony Michael Hall. Following a near-fatal car accident, Johnny Smith (Hall) lies motionless in a deep coma for six years. When he awakens from his deep sleep, Johnny is haunted by psychic visions that allow him to look into the future of anyone he touches. Realizing that he can use his unique powers for the good of humankind, Johnny sets out on an tireless quest for justice that's plagued by danger at every turn. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
