Film: The Indestructible Man

A violent criminal called The Butcher (Lon Chaney Jr.) is executed and then brought back to life by a scientist using electricity. The Butcher becomes an invulnerable mute and seeks vengeance upon those who caused his execution.

Film historian Tom Weaver wrote an excellent book about the film as Volume #2 of his Scripts from the Crypt series (following hot on the heels of Volume #1, The Hideous Sun Demon), featuring extensive background information about the film as well the script.
