ok this movie is pretty screwed up. this really nice, hardworking man(tim matheson)is killed by his wife(jennifer jason leigh). the man she is having an affair with come up with this plan to poison him. well she doesn't give him enough. so it justs puts him in a coma. they bury him. predictabley he wakes up in his coffin. he crawls through the coffin and through six feet of dirt. how the crap he could manage that i don't know. it was also raining. he makes it back home and of coarse finds out what's going on. he concocts a plan and i can't tell you what because you'll just have to watch the movie. it's an ok movie. there is also a sequel. can't remember seeing it.
