Storyline

Chuck Hausman returns with his wife Rebecca to his birthplace Deerfield, where he left 20 years ago, joining the Marine corps just to get away from his father, the then generally revered reverend Leo Hausman, who didn't spare him the belt; to her shock she learns he faked psychosis to get interred and then released but never told her. Leo's will names him the main heir, while admitting the capital of an investment fund three locals entrusted Leo is completely lost; Pete Gromek and his partners however think it might just be hidden for Chuck, knowing they would shy away from a police investigation which would also bring in the IRS. The lawyer also gives Chuck Leo's diary, which he hopes contains the answers, but is stolen by Leo's housekeeper, Mrs. Ford, who claims to have earned the money by her loyal service all those decades. She is found dead, head fatally smashed on a stone, Chuck says she must have fallen, but had opportunity to do it. Jeanine Blaylock, his teenage first love, is... Written by KGF Vissers

I`m Not Scared
12 December 2002 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I was up watching BBC1 round about midnight so guess what was on ? That`s right an American TVM which was called LIVING IN FEAR and amazingly didn`t star Jane Seymour or Victoria Principal in a disease of the week plot . But that didn`t stop this TVM from being formuliac . As in all these type of films it starts with a dramatic flashback over the opening titles - A woman falling down a flight of steps - then a caption appears informing us that it`s now twenty years later as a newly wed couple arrive in town . And being a TVM it`s a middle American town while the newly weds - Chuck and Rebecca

  • are middle American white Anglo-Saxon protestants . Suffice to say Chuck


has a very dark secret from his past and Rebecca soon finds herself in mortal peril . The only difference between LIVING IN FEAR and most other TVMs is that this one is slightly more violent than the usual fare and contains the F word a couple of times

Oh hold on there ! If it contains the F word then it surely can`t be one of those American mainstream network TVMs . Then why is it written , directed and acted as if it is ?
