Storyline

A man (Quaid) is executed in the electric chair for having killed several women, but due to lightning striking a transformer at the moment of execution, he survives. As soon as he's well, however, they plan to electrocute him again, but now he has become a changed man and the female criminal Psychiatrist (Davidtz) attributes it to the electrocution wiping out certain brain cells. But more, she finds that the man is capable of psychic awareness of killings about to happen and although he is able to help the police, there is still public opinion that fights against any chance for clemency... they want him executed again.

What a surprise
30 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was made-for-cable? This was a very good movie.

Randy Quaid was awesome as serial killer Jeremy Dillon, who undergoes a transformation after his execution in Florida's electric chair is botched (Yes, it IS set in Florida, and they do mention 'Ol' Sparky'. Interestingly enough, this movie was made after an inmate's face burst into flames while he was being electrocuted). Now, not only does he not believe he's capable of the acts he committed (raping and murdering young women) much less remember them, he can see the future as well. When his 'psychic' powers lead to the closure of some cases, including the freedom of a friend wrongly placed on death row himself, the public becomes sympathetic. But can he convince the Governor, the Warden, his psychologist and a victim's advocate (who is the sister of one of his victims) that's he's really a changed man?
