Storyline

This movie based on the 60's television series, brings back some of the major characters. It begins when a young girl Megan comes to town and she bears a resemblance to Allison Mackenzie, who disappeared 20 years ago. It is revealed that she is Allison's daughter. She is not warmly greeted by Kelly, the sister that Allison never knew of, it seems that she resents Allison, cause she appears to be the center of her parents universe. She has set her sights on Dana Harrington, who is in line to inherit the Peyton fortune. And it seems that Dana has shifted his attention from Kelly to Megan. It is also revealed that Allison, not long after she disappeared was attack by someone, and she has been in a catatonic state, when she is moved to Peyton Place someone goes into her room and kills her and makes it appear that she committed suicide. However, Steven Cord suspects that Allison did not take her life, so he investigates. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Lots of fun
6 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember when this showed on TV back in 1985. It was testing the waters to see if there was any interest in starting a night time soap of "Peyton Place". Sadly, this bombed. That's too bad. It was well-acted and directed and never dull.

It was no masterpiece but a very good, well-done TV movie. You didn't have to have seen the original series to understand this--the movie introduces all the characters and situations. Also there are "flashbacks" to the old TV series (in b&w of course) which are fun. It's REAL interesting to see Mia Farrow and Ryan O'Neal so young and healthy.

Recommended--but it probably doesn't pop up often.
