Dead Zone, The

To be honest, if you wanted to make a horror film with Christopher Walken in, you could just sit him in a chair and have him look into the camera for 90 minutes, smiling occasionally. Anyway, David Cronenberg has him do a bit more in this version of Stephen King’s novel in which a young, bright, happy  – and therefore damned – teacher is put into a coma for five years only to wake up and discover he’s psychic, a power no doubt exacerbated by having scary eyes. Not normally our cup of tea, but Herbert Lom appears, so we’ll always be there for it.
