Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 7

For some reason, David Cronenberg's 1983 movie version of the Stephen King novel The Dead Zone was endlessly watchable to me and my friends. I had a copy on VHS, and I know we spent more than one afternoon watching it after school. I think one friend had a crush on Christopher Walken, so that was part of it. Another aspect was that some parts are kind of...silly, and therefore endlessly quotable, ("I? Am the boy?!" "The ICE...is GONNA BREAK!").

But maybe the biggest part was, it's a really good, simple horror movie, and holds up to multiple viewings. Watch it (again) at 7:45PM PST on Sundance.
