| The nut who lives across the street
***SPOILERS*** Nutty as a fruitcake movie that, incredible as it may seem , is based on a true story about this ghoulish looking guy Seth Durand, Richard Harmon,who's obsessed with his next door or across the street neighbor Nora Betnner's, Josie Bissett, teenage daughter Scarlett Sarah Grey,who's a classmate of his. It's when Nora's 12 year old son Gus, Gus, Spencer Drever, goes missing she immediately suspects that the creepy and death faced looking Seth is responsible in kidnapping him.

With the police unable to get any evidence against Seth's involvement in Gus's disappearance Nora together with Scarlett take matters as well as Seth into their own hands kidnapping him and torturing him almost to death, in a steel cage exposed to the elements with only his shorts on, to find out what happened to Gus and where,if he's still alive, they can find him. This goes on for days at a time until Scarlett screws up, by turning her back on him, and having Seth suffering from psychical abuse hunger sleep deprivation and only with his shorts on escape into the woods and finding his way back to Mama's Iris Durand, Beverley Elliott,place.

***SPOILERS*** It's at Mama's place that we as well as Scarlett, who tracked Seth down there, finally get the lowdown of what Seth is all about and why he's acting so strangely in regards to the Bentnner's and especially to young Gus. That's in how he's been treated by his big brother Brian who was killed in a swimming accident some time ago by his coach the now detective Coyle,Mike Dupod, who's on the case of Gus' disappearance!

It was Mama Durand who sued Coyle and lost that had her try to get even with him for causing her to go bankrupt, even though she lived in what looked like a $250,000,00 two story house, by driving him with this Gus kidnapping case to suffer a major burn out. We always knew that Seth was a bit nuts but this shows just how out of his skull he really is. Trying to abuse him by trying him up and surrounding him with dead animals as well as using Gus as a punching bag to make up with what his brother did to him was even too much for his mom-who wasn't exactly all there in the first place- to take. That lead to the final explosive scene in the movie where Seth, who was already badly worked over, finally got his long called for comeuppance as he tried to murder both Scarlett as well as Mrs. Batnner but like everything else he did-The big loser-screwed it all up. !
