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.
