Storyline

This is the fact-based made-for-TV movie of Laurie Kellog, who was accused of the murder of her husband Bruce in May 1992, told in flashbacks while she's waiting for her judgment. When she was 16 she met the 15 years older Bruce Kellog, a charming guy, and moved in with him shortly after. What she didn't know was that he "bought" her from her stepfather for 500 bucks. First she's happy to serve him, but not long and Bruce shows his real face. Written by Goruda Shiro <gorudashiro@aol.com>

Quotes

[last lines]
Laurie Kellogg: [narrating] I dreamed of Bruce coming to the prison, that he was going to come and get me. He grabs me right by the hair and walks me out of here telling me that it really irritates him because the dishes weren't done and the laundry was being backed up and that I had things to be doing. What am I doing hanging around doing nothing? And my heart is filled with love. And then I wake up and I remembered he was dead. Marlene was wrong. The jury found me guilty and the judge sentenced me...

Boy, this movie took it to the limit.
12 June 2004 | by (Palmyra, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I grew up in Linglestown, and knew Denver McDowell. The producers of this movie took great liberties with the filming. The houses Denver and the Kelloggs lived in look NOTHING like the ones in the movie. Also, the town is LinglesTOWN, not LinglesTON. I do not know enough about the situation to know who was telling the truth, but I do know it would've been nice if someone would have actually COME to Pennsylvania and researched the area. Add to that the fact that the actors look absolutely NOTHING like the real people, and it makes it just more over the top.

The writing of the movie is simply just another Lifetime movie of the week.
