FEAR ITSELF : " THE FAMILY MAN "
plays Dennis Mahoney, a responsible husband and father. We first see
Dennis with his family singing in church, and then at their home, a
typical loving family. As Dennis drives to work, he receives a call on
his cell phone from his wife Kathy (Josie Davis)
asking him to pick up some milk on his way home. Suddenly, another car
races through an intersection and slams into Dennis’ car. Blood drips
onto the cell phone lying on the pavement as Dennis is slumped over in
In the hospital emergency room, Dennis wearing a hospital gown sees
his family on the other side of a window in the waiting room. He tries
to get their attention, but is unsuccessful. "She can't hear ya bro,"
says a man in a flannel shirt named Brautigan (Clifton Collins, Jr.).
"She can't see ya either. You're dead. We both are." Dennis protests,
but follows the man, who leads Dennis to an operating room. Brautigan's
body, bleeding from a gun shot wound, lies on a gurney. Nearby, Dennis
lies still from a massive head injury. "This can't be happening,"
Dennis says while staring at his own body.
Dennis wakes up and discovers he is chained to a hospital bed. He asks for his family. "Your family?” says Sheriff Weller (Michael St. John Smith).
“You don't have a family unless you count the ones you slaughtered."
Dennis turns to look at himself in the mirror. He is in Brautigan’s
While talking with his court appointed attorney, Dennis explains his
situation, but all his attorney can say is that spiritual
transmigration is not a good defense, and shows him a photo of himself
(Brautigan) in a newspaper labeling him as "The Family Man," a prolific
serial killer. Dennis insists that his attorney check out his story,
but the attorney walks away in disbelief.
Dennis comes face to face with Brautigan, now in Dennis’ body,
through the glass partition in the visitor room. Brautigan informs
Dennis that he has taken over Dennis’ life and lives in his home with
his family. Brautigan also suggests that they help each other, with
Dennis telling him how to live his life on the outside while Brautigan
will help Dennis survive on the inside. Dennis refuses.
During a second consultation with his attorney, Dennis learns that
the police have found tapes of Brautigan torturing and murdering his
victims. The attorney tells Dennis that if he wants to escape the death
penalty, he should reveal where he buried all of the bodies. Dennis
once again insists that he is not Brautigan and therefore does not know
where any bodies are buried. When the attorney again starts to leave in
disbelief, Dennis repeats his plea for the attorney to check out his
story, and says if the details do not check out, he will cooperate with
Brautigan begins to find it difficult to adjust to life as Dennis.
The family notices that the man they know as Dennis Mahoney has changed
since his accident. Dennis attempts to call his family repeatedly, but
the family does not understand and believe the strange caller is
harassing them. Brautigan comforts Kathy and vows to change the phone
The attorney tells Dennis that the details of his story check out,
but that he knows Brautigan, as Dennis, has visited him and could be
feeding him the details.
Pressure mounts for Dennis as he faces a death sentence, and also
for Brautigan, who starts to lose his temper with the family. Dennis
has a dream in which he sees that it is a matter of time before
Brautigan harms his family, and after waking, he calls to the sheriff
that he is ready to show where the bodies are located. Outside in a
police car, Dennis tells the driver to stop just near his church and
neighborhood. As the police remove him from the car, Dennis grabs the
shotgun from the officer and hits both the officer and the sheriff on
the head, and runs for his house.
Dennis walks into his kitchen and finds Brautigan washing the
dishes. When he asks where his family is Brautigan casually replies
that they're not home and that he is trespassing, then pulls a kitchen
knife with a trace of blood on it and a fight between the two men
ensues. The two men struggle, but eventually Dennis gets the upper
hand, throwing Brautigan into a table and choking him until he loses
consciousness; saying to him; "Remember Brautigan. God doesn't make
mistakes, the Lord can never let this happen. Thy. Will. Be. Done!"
Wounded after the struggle, Dennis takes a moment to catch his breath,
senses something behind him, turns, and is immediately shot by the
Dennis is revived by a medical technician and is grateful to find
himself back in his own body. He asks to see his family but notices
that there is something wrong. He gets up and runs upstairs, calling
their names, but discovers that Brautigan has killed his wife and son.
His daughter Courtney (Nicole Leduc),
however, seems to have been spared. But Dennis soon realizes the cruel
irony; when the sheriff asks the girl who hurt her mommy and brother,
she points at Dennis, who realizes that he will not be able to convince
anyone of his innocence.
