I saw a few minutes of a movie (or hey, it could have been a series) back in the 90s on late night television and I'm suddenly curious as to what it was. It was a long time ago so I might have flubbed the details but I think it had:
Someone apparently jacking in to a neural virtual reality system or donning a head-mounted display and experiencing what I assume is a recording of someone else's experience of death or near-death.
He experiences floating down a tunnel with a light at the end of it.
He shouts and pulls off the VR/HMD system in a panic as he nears the end of the tunnel, which I think had a glowing indistinct humanoid figure at the end.
The room that he was jacking in from contained a chair/recliner that basically consisted of a giant leaf or seed pod.
Any ideas? I don't believe it to be either Flatliners or Strange Days.
