Blu-ray distributor Scream Factory announced earlier this year that they would be releasing a Collector's Edition of the Stephen King adaptation The Dead Zone, with the company having officially released the slate of special features fans can expect from the release. Like many other Scream Factory releases, the upcoming Collector's Edition of The Dead Zone will include not just previously released featurettes, but also multiple new supplemental materials, such as all-new commentary tracks, interviews, and an upgraded 4K scan. Check out the complete list of special features below before the new Blu-ray of The Dead Zone hits shelves on July 27th.
Scream Factory describes the film, "Schoolteacher Johnny Smith (Christopher Walken) had a beautiful fiancée, a rewarding career and a fortunate life ... until one tragic accident changed everything. After slamming into an 18-wheeler, Johnny is plunged into a five-year coma. When he awakens, he finds his true collision was with destiny – he now has the remarkable gift (or curse) of seeing into the future. From horror master Stephen King and Director David Cronenberg (Scanners, Dead Ringers), this supernatural thriller turns an everyday guy into a reluctant hero ... saving children in danger, helping the police, and finding a serial killer. But Johnny's next vision may be his most terrifying yet ..."
