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.

Descent...for a TV movie
24 January 2005 | by ffinch247See all my reviews

For a TV movie this is pretty good, Randy Quaid is EXCELLENT! I think the idea behind this film is what pulls people in and keeps them interested. The first time I saw this film I only saw the last half hour and waited almost two years for it to turn up again on the TV listings, I have to say it was worth the wait. As I've already said Quaid is by far the best performance of this film and carries it for a lot of the time.

They could of very easily overdone the bits about the vision and made it very corny but the didn't and I think it paid off I have two ratings for this film, as a TV movie I give it 7/10 But more generally as a film I give it 5/10
