Trivia

The Dead Zone was the first of several Stephen King novels and short stories that took place in the fictional small town of Castle Rock. Others include: Cujo (1983), Stand by Me (1986), The Dark Half (1993), and Needful Things (1993).


Quotes

Johnny Smith: And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting, on the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door, and his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, and the lamp light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on ...


Goofs

After Dr.Weizak finds Johnny's new home and is invited inside, he begins to pull out medication from his bag. Johnny stops him and Dr.Weizak puts the medication on the table and sits down. In the next scene when he stands up again, the medication is gone.


Crazy Credits

As the opening titles roll, certain parts (or "dead zones") of the screen become blocked out, until the part of the screen you can see spell out the title "The Dead Zone."


Alternate Versions

Although the UK cinema version was 18-rated and intact in 1986 Thorn-EMI released a British home video version with 13 seconds cut to obtain a 15 certificate rating from the BBFC. A scissor suicide sequence was re-edited to remove shots of the preparation and aftermath, and shots of topless nudity and the descending scissors were removed from the gazebo murder. Later 18-rated releases feature the full uncut print.
