Movie Info

The made-for-TV Fatal Memories is based on a true story. Shelley Long stars as a California woman whose repressed memories suddenly burst forth. She promptly accuses her father of murder that occurred 20 years earlier. Then she experiences flashes of recollection suggesting that her father was also a party to her preteen rape. Many questions are raised but few are resolved during the climactic courtroom sequence. The theory of Repressed Memory Syndrome is in such disrepute nowadays that it's likely a rebroadcast of Fatal Memories will be even more controversial than its original telecast on November 9, 1992. The film has been syndicated as The Eileen Franklin Story.

Audience Reviews for Fatal Memories


Ok tv movie. Shelly Long did a nice job in this. Very convincing and heartwarming performance on her behalf. This movie is about a woman who after 20 years starts to remember what her father did to her when she was younger. Through these memories she also remembers a crime he committed that involved her best friend at the time.
