novel, by Stephen King.
Later made into a film. 1983. Directed by David Cronenberg

Starred Christopher Walken and Martin Sheen. Walken played a man who almost dies in a car accident, then awakens from a coma some 5 years later.

In addition to dealing with a body that is in atrophy, he is now blessed/cursed with the ability to read the future of anyone he touches.

Great special effects and a truly horrific plot.
