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

Woman in peril...husband might be killer...
17 June 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

LIVING IN FEAR is the kind of movie we've all seen before--and here at least it's told with a moderate amount of suspense diluted by a back and forth suspicion that the husband may or may not be a killer. I say diluted because along the way motives become fuzzy and it isn't until we learn the whole truth at the end that we see how neatly everything was manipulated to keep us watching. It's the kind of story where you can't see how it's all going to be resolved--nor which characters will survive the climactic confrontation at the finale.

I'd say it's a better than average made-for-TV movie that creates suspense in a rather mechanical way. Performances are credible, especially William R. Moses who seems to specialize in these kind of ambiguous roles in stories of scare and menace. Marcia Cross is efficient enough as his mystified wife and John Saxon is seen briefly in a cameo role.

Not bad as these sort of things go but not up to Agatha Christie level either.
