I don't know..."Dead Zone" is my favourite King book too, but the movie is only faring "better than average" with me despite a great cast and the neat touch of having Johnny appear during and in the midst of his visions.
Cronenberg did a good job, but his sort-of distanced style doesn't suit the material too well imho. I would have wanted to see the movie totally grab me on an emotional level, but it didn't despite the final scenes.
This is a novel I'd very, very much would welcome a new movie adaption of.
Just think of the potential in the current times!
If Oliver Stone ever considered to pick up a King source, it simply should be "The Dead Zone"!
