The bank executive Dennis Mahoney (Colin Ferguson) is a religious man dedicated to his wife Kathy Mahoney (Josie Rebecca Davis) and children. One Sunday afternoon, Dennis need to go to the bank and has a car accident. Dennis is near death but survives; however he awakes in the body of the serial-killer Richard "Family Man" Brautigan (Clifton Collins Jr.). Soon he learns that they have switched bodies and Brautigan is living with his family. Further, he needs to find a way to save his family from the deranged killer.

"Family Man" is a cruel tale "Fear Itself", with a good but predictable story of a good man that somehow switches body with a serial-killer. The despair of Dennis to save his family is depicted by a great performance of Clifton Collins Jr. The predictable conclusion is very sad and without redemption. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Family Man"
