IMO, The Dead Zone is one of the best King film adaptations ever. It has a genuinely melancholy, spooky vibe, and Christopher Walken is just superb in it. Plus, it's directed by David Cronenberg. I wouldn't be too hasty in writing it off.After reading reviews and descriptions I decided to... NOT watch the others in that set.
For the curious, the other films in the set are:
The Dead Zone - This one has the best reviews but the premise sounds kind of "meh" and is a type I generally don't like.
Pet Sematary - From the reviews I've read this is bottom-of-the-barrel King. Since I consider his "top shelf" material to be quite low aspiring it's a pass.
Graveyard Shift - Also rather negative reviews but not nearly as bad as for Pet Sematary. Still, it sounds rather lame and I just don't like "rat" movies at all finding most rather laughable. Another pass.
