I remember watching this thriller movie as a child at home (I wasn’t suppose to be watching but snuck in to the room to watch here and there). People are getting killed so detectives (main one is a woman) are called to investigate. The people getting killed are linked to this man in a comatose state. I remember the ending being that he was NOT in a coma, but rather faking it and going around killing the doctors/nurses that were there for his birth that saved him when he wished they would have let him die since his quality of life was so poor.

The scene I remember vividly was this man’s mom taking care of him (she was not very nice and always said mean things to him since she didn’t think he could hear her) and as she walks away saying mean things, the camera pans in close to his face and his eyes open quickly which was a huge plot twist and the music make it a jump scare. I think his eyes were two different colors?

This has haunted me that I can’t find the name, and thought maybe I imagined it or it was a dream - but that scene and a few others were sooooo vivid. Anyone know if this is a real movie?? Has the be older that 2005 at least.

    Hi, welcome to SciFi.SE. Were there any science fictional or fantastical elements that occurred in the movie? Any ghosts, demons, or paranormal activities? Were the people killed in some other-wordly manner perhaps?

    I’m voting to close this question as off-topic because it does not appear to have any science-fiction or fantasy elements.

    There is a movie called Patrick from 1978. Patrick is comatose but he can leave his body. He kills or attempts to kill several people including his nurse's ex-husband and current boyfriend. It was remade in 2013.
