Reviews

Double bill of psychological horror films based on the novels of Stephen King. Drew Barrymore stars in 'Firestarter' (1984) as Charlie McGee, a young girl who has the ability to start fires purely by the force of her mind. Charlie's difficulties in coming to terms with her unusual gift are intensified when the CIA decide they want to use her for their own ends. She just wants to be treated as a normal choice, and with the help of her father (David Keith), does everything she can to prevent herself from becoming a pawn in the government's game. Martin Sheen, George C. Scott and Louise Fletcher co-star. 'The Dead Zone' (1983) is directed by David Cronenberg. Johnny Smith (Christopher Walken) is a schoolteacher who, after surviving a terrible road accident, emerges from a five-year coma cursed with psychic powers that enable him to see into the future. When he then meets Presidential candidate Greg Stillson (Martin Sheen), Johnny has a vision of the apocalyptic disasters which would befall the world if this man should ever win office, and realises that it is his destiny to prevent such a thing from ever happening.

This DVD was very good and was a good price for both of stephens king DVDS, however though it was all perfect except for that the DVD had no subtitles, I am a little deaf and so would've liked it to have subtitles, but besides that, brilliant DVD and the fact you got it brand new despite it being made in 1984 amazed me.

Rarely shown on television, dated as to filming style and unlikely to be re-made and if they are wont be better.

Dead Zone, an intense Walken, more intense than the book, finds that after coming out of a coma can see the future of whomever he touches. He helps save lives and stop a serial killer. Then it goes a bit mad when he shakes the hand of a presidential candidate. Can he save the world from oblivion?

Firestarter, Drew Barrymore, before she became rubbish. little girl with the power to destroy with telekinetic fire. Does get slated for George C Scott as the Native America assassin. But really who would bet on that screen combo every Drew Barrymore and George?

They are good andif you read the books and want to watch a fair adaptation then go for it.

Dead Zone is one of the best movies that is based on a book by Stephen King. This is the first time I saw Firestarter since it ran on theatres at `80s. It was great to watch them again.

I bought this for Dead Zone with Firestarter as a bonus. The former lived up to expectations, but the latter is just an also ran. I got a good price and delivery was superb. Dead Zone is worth watching, just to see Christopher Walken, walk with a limp faster than most people can run!
