Trivia

The set for the residential interior was constructed on a sound stage in/at the Culver City Studios on Washington Boulevard (the old Selznick Studio of "Gone With The Wind" fame). Production offices, also, were located at the studio. The interior living room stage set required a turn around for the scenario effects script requirement (with wind and bricks flying from and through the walls). On the same sound stage, the health club set was erected with three thicknesses of plaster wall board covering the wooden stage flooring set footprint, required for the controlled fire effects when Susan Lucci introduces her "hellish" character's charms! The translucent vacuum formed panels, used in the set wall panels, actually started melting from the intense heat radiated from the gas-line-pipes which were positioned to create the aisle of fire Susan Lucci walked through. The fire sequence required several re-takes causing the plastic material melting. Viewing the sequence, you can see the vacuum formed 4" deep pyramid pattern-plastic design sag on camera. Susan Lucci's costume and hair was singed and scorched from the intense heat. See more »

A good made for TV movie!
1 January 2003 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Robert Urich was a fine actor, and he makes this TV movie believable. I remember watching this film when I was 15, and when seeing it a second time my opinion stays the same. People lose who they were when enter this exclusive club, in a computer rich Californian town. Urich try's to figure out what is wrong with his family, and I love the Halloween space suit idea, brilliant. This film is about the battle of one's sprit. TV quality, that exceeds, the big budget, Gangs of New York. I wonder if Robert Urich was the compassionate man he portrayed in many of his movie? I hope so! 6 or 7 out of 10.
