not a horror/action but more like a TV movie with emphasis on drama. probably late 80s to early 90s
my memory is sketchy but what I mainly remember is this guy is brought back to life possibly after being technically dead at the hospital, but he starts being mean to his family/friends and possibly tries to kill his own parents to gain their inheritance or something. In the final scenes of the movie he ends up being killed by his own mother (possibly), and I think she stabs him with one of those black metal rods you use to stoke a log fire?
I think the guy's name might've been Richard. A line of dialogue I seem to remember from near the end is his mother telling him something like "you were never the same since you came back to us after the accident Richard, you're just cold now".
Last clue, the back from the dead guy looked similar to this actor who used to be in Falcon Crest, but I don't think it's him
- although weirdly I've just taken a look at his imdb and there's a film from 1991 where this guy plays a character called Richard who dies of blood cancer. there's no other info but I don't think
this is the film I mean because it looks too much like a romantic melodrama, which the film I'm on about wasn't. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101787/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_37edit
- no it's definitely not this.
