Default Where is Cronenberg's "The Dead Zone?"

Here is a movie based on a Stephen King book I'd like to see released on BD.

It came out in 1983 so maybe we'll see a 30th anniversary release later this year

I always forget this was a Cronenberg film. Definitely needs a release, but I'd bet on Paramount sub-licensing it out to Twilight Time, Olive, or one of the other distributors. Or, better yet, perhaps its one of the titles that Warner now controls the distribution rights for through their recent licensing deal.

Warner Bros has it, as part of their distribution deal with Paramount. They also have Silver Bullet, Graveyard Shift, and Pet Sematary 2. I would guess that The Dead Zone and Silver Bullet have the best shot at getting BD releases.

Being based on a King story and directed by Cronenberg I am sure it will see release in the near future.

I noticed that Italy appears to be getting a BD release of The Dead Zone…

I am now overjoyed to find that it appears as if there will be an Australian release in January 2015.

Can't wait for this one. Big fan of Stephen King and a fan of Cronenberg's later work (eg. The Fly, Naked Lunch, A History of Violence). This is one I am sure many BDphiles have been waiting for.

Are you guys sure that this is region free?
Here it's says it's region B:

Amazon supports that.
Thanks!

It has been confirmed region free by folks who bought it. It is entered into the database for the disc itself.

Should be noted that retailers in most cases don't bother giving the correct specs regarding discs and region status is low priority, they just slap whatever region they are in and call it a day. Heck, even the studios/distributors aren't altogether reliable with the region status on the back of the covers! Testing the disc yourself is the only sure way of finding out.

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.
