Editorial Reviews

Ambition and treachery are an explosive combination when a driven young architect moves to jet-setting L.A. to pursue a dream job that ignites into a terrifying nightmare. Walter Woods (Rob Lowe, The West Wing) leaves his wife behind, coming west to design a Bel Air mansion for a very rich and eccentric client (James Belushi, According to Jim). But from the moment he arrives, his entire life begins to unravel. Shaken from a near road accident, Walter's apartment manager (Dean Stockwell, Blue Velvet) pulls him deeper into a suspenseful world of darkness and danger, where every turn is a dead end and every friendly gesture is marked by deceit. Desperate and terrified, but determined to discover who is out to ruin him, Walter fights back -- but the price for winning back his life may be his soul...

"Living in Peril" is a 1996 thriller starring Robe Lowe and Jim Belushi. If I am not mistaken, this is the first time since "About Last Night..." both of these actors shared the screen. My brother and I both have a love-hate vibe for "About Last Night, but LOVE the chemistry Lowe and Belushi shared. Therefore, when we discovered they were in another movie together we had to see it. It is also nice that this DVD provides a nice widescreen presentation.

This film is about an architect named Walter Woods (Rob Lowe) who is traveling from Seattle to Los Angeles for month in order to design a home for an "off the cuff" client (Jim Belushi). Walter did have reservations about leaving for a month. His pregnant wife Linda (Dana Wheeler-Nicholson) is still very much traumatized by her abusive ex-husband. This promotes nightmares and paranoid thoughts for Linda. This doesn't please Walter, but he has to work. On his way to LA, Walter has a run in with a crazy truck driver who runs Walter off the road. This results in Walter taking down the trucker's number and reporting him.

Since Walter will be on a month long job he is going to need a place to stay. This leads him to an apartment house ran by William (played caustically and dourly by Dean Stockwell). The only other residents at this apartment house are an aspiring comedian who is from Germany and a sultry call girl.

From the moment Walter reaches LA he is plagued with torment. Somebody has it out for Walter and begins to terrorize him. Some of the insidious factors Walter falls victim to are rats in his bed, a broken toe and his designs being destroyed (just watch the scene).

When I start watching a film, I usually know what genre it's in so I know what emotions it's going to incite as I watch it. I'd say that is probably the case with most people. With Living In Peril, I found myself constantly wondering, is this supposed to be a comedy that is poking fun at the thriller genre or is it an actual full on thriller with all of it's intent being on the drama? Well, I stopped wondering by the end, at which time the crap really hit the fan and you are no longer kept in the dark that this is indeed a thriller of serious intent.

The finale is one that I predicted but I had the identity of the ex husband pinned on another character. Yup, I was completely sucked in, didn't see the forest for the trees, and that's the reason I'm giving Living In Peril 3 stars, otherwise it probably would have received 2 at best, as it's an emotionally convoluted mess of a movie otherwise, having characters we are used to seeing in comedic roles and here, giving what seems to be comedic performances.

Based on the surprise factor alone, you should probably see the film as it's hard to find a movie that truly manages to get you to slap your head in shock anymore.

A minor suspense film. Looks like it was made-for-cable. Okay acting. An architect, visiting LA on business, is terrorized by an unseen enemy (who may be an angry road rage trucker). The detectives investigating the incidents are especially poorly portrayed: flatly written and performed with boredom. And the prostitute with a heart of gold is sexy, but her role is just silly.
The sets and characters kept reminding me of The Landlady, a more boring film, that also had a prostitute living across the hall from the protagonist. The wife is played by Dana Wheeler-Nicholson (who was great in Circuitry Man), who seems to have shot her few scenes in one day, in the same room (aside from a shot at the end).
I'm giving it a generous three stars because it was still entertaining, in a low-brow/low-budget sort of way.
