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 ?
