Goofs

When Dennis walks into the police station about 30 minutes into the movie, the officer and clerk are at a computer terminal talking about his mother having Alzheimer's and his wife passing away when the son was 3. When Dennis asks where they are getting this information, the officer says law enforcement - NCIC and FBI. The NCIC is the National Crime Information Computer, and all it contains is criminal arrest or missing/wanted person data, such as name, date of birth, addresses, and offenses by charge and location (arresting agency). No personal family history is stored there. Ditto the FBI. An FBI number only means someone has been arrested for certain offenses or in multiple states. See more »

Chick-flik masquerading as Sci-Fi Horror
13 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the typical "small town with something to hide" story. In this case, the "something" is a spring that keeps the inhabitants perpetually young -- until they reach their centennial. When a townie reaches the age of 100, the community throws a lavish birthday party, the climax of which is the murder of the guest of honor. One way to control the population, I guess.

Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" is a much better example of the genre.

The most notable thing about this movie is that the author of the book upon which the movie is based, Clifford Irving, did 14 months in jail for defrauding his publisher with a phony "authorized" biography of Howard Hughes.

There's nothing great or really memorable about this movie, but it's a pleasant enough way to kill a couple of hours.
