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.

How did we miss this one?
5 October 1999 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

I'm showing this one to all of my friends who somehow missed it too. Randy Quaid does some of his best acting (although you've gotta admit his true calling is in comedys). I also enjoyed the script, especially where they DIDN'T say anything. Randy in the toaster (electric chair), without any last words is classy. Rent it!
