The Dead Zone

Cabaret Cinema

Friday, September 7, 2018
9:30 PM–11:20 PM

1983, David Cronenberg, USA, 103 min.

Introduced by QueerCosmos astrologer Colin Bedell

Zodiac: Aries (Christopher Walken’s birth sign)


The second contribution by Stephen King to this series, The Dead Zone imagines a now no longer improbable scenario: a narcissistic and vengeful presidential candidate venting anti-establishment rhetoric who might trigger a world war if elected to office. Christopher Walken plays a man with precognitive powers who reluctantly comes to realize his ability to change the future.


“Complex but compelling—and as eerily prescient as its psychic protagonist.”

—Rolling Stone
