Storyline

Victor Sandeman is a senior partner with Brunel Global Securities. He is experiencing major financial problems, ones that can be solved if the planned $100 million merger of the company takes place. However, the company's owner, Raymond Brunel, is against the merger. Thinking that he can overpower the ineffective David Brunel, Raymond's grandson and the company's heir apparent, Victor murders the elderly Raymond (trying to make it look like a death by natural causes) so that he can go ahead with the planned merger. The one glitch in the murder is a possible witness, Christine Sternwald. A paralegal and aspiring lawyer, Christine is just putting her life back together following a sexual assault three years earlier. When Victor and Christine meet shortly after the murder in a fender bender with Victor driving the deceased Raymond's car, Victor is forced to identify himself to her as Raymond Brunel. Because of this chance meeting and the possibility that she did see the murder take place... Written by Huggo

Going Bump in the Night
19 November 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

In Seattle, Washington, ambitious "Brunel Global Securities" executive Currie Graham (as Victor Sandeman) proposes to merge with another company. When owner Don MacKay (as Raymond Brunel) declines the offer, Mr. Graham decides to murder the leader. Graham carefully plots the older man's demise, but has a fender-bender with attractive paralegal Natasha Gregson Wagner (as Christine "Chris" Sternwald) en route. "The Accidental Witness" unwittingly causes Graham's plans to unravel. Complimented by a tight plot (by Michael Rhodes) and pulsating score (by Brent Belke), director Kristoffer Tabori and the "Lifetime" TV Movie crew make this an engaging thriller. Graham's performance holds it together.
