Storyline

In Los Angeles, psychologist Wendy Brown witnessed her abusive brother-in-law beat up her sister, who eventually died from her injuries. During that incident, Wendy shot him dead in self-defense. To get away from that nightmare, she has moved to the small town of Corinth, Oregon, located in an emerging ski area. In Corinth, she has temporarily opened up her home, which she calls Comfort House, as a refuge for battered women, while she builds a more permanent Comfort House on her acreage. She has found that there is a culture of wife beating in Corinth, especially among the hyper-masculine hunting crowd. The police do nothing about reports of abuse as the sheriff, "Bear" Trapp, is included within that hunting crowd, his friends who are among the accused wife beaters, most of that crowd's wives who are currently residing at Comfort House. When one of those husbands is found shot dead in his home, Sheriff Trapp, taking the path of least resistance, rules the death a suicide, and refuses ... Written by Huggo

Secrets of Comfort House-Uncomfortable **1/2
14 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Someone has done 3 battered women a favor. The favor has been to kill each of their abusive husbands.

The film takes place in a rough neck area of Oregon. It seems to be fashionable there to hit your wife.

Our heroine has moved to this town. She is a social worker who killed her brother-in-law. The latter had been beating her sister and ultimately killed her.

New in Oregon, she begins to take in battered women but soon becomes the focus of the investigation when three of the women she takes in conveniently have their husbands killed.

The suspicions of our heroine as the killer seem to be obvious. There is a vicious police chief in town who takes a dislike to the woman and suspends his deputy, the latter having found love with this woman.

With less than a half-hour remaining, the plot resolves itself. It is a surprise ending but we have seen things like this before.
