I'd also like to see this on Blu. The Dead Zone was an incredible film - Christopher Walken was excellent in this, and it may even be his best role. The script was very true to the original novel; like De Palma's Carrie, this is a rare example of a film that truly does the original Stephen King book justice.

I also felt it was appropriate that the movie was filmed & set during the dead of winter - whether or not this was coincidental or intentional, IMHO this aspect (snow, ice, cold, etc.) added to the starkness of the story.

I especially thought it was great that they kept the excellent ending of the novel intact in the film.
