Storyline

A newly-wed NYC couple move into a low-rent luxury apartment only to be harassed by cryptic elderly neighbors. Matt (Dean Cain) and Jackie (Portia de Rossi) are living in NYC, brimming with that certain "glow" all newly-weds possess. They are in love despite failed attempts at pregnancy and a tight budget. One day, Matt meets a group of health-obsessed elderly people in the park. They seem kind, and offer Matt and Jackie a beautiful low-rent apartment in their building. How can the couple resist a luxury apartment with a state-of-the-art gym, cheap rent, and friendly neighbors? Jackie believes it all too good to be true when she notices a young couple in their building disappears, and elderly neighbors are watching her every move... Written by merryweather

I stayed up late one night to watch this movie just because I like Portia De Rossi and found myself pretty interested in it, although quite predictable there are a few chilling twists in this drama and it's worth watching if it is on. It's a decent mystery drama and you should be pleasantly suprised by the sub-par acting by most of the cast.

It centres around a couple who move into a new apartment at an extremely cheap price with a bunch of old people, who are obsessed with fitness we find out there obesession is more sinister than we realise and they will do anything to keep their youth

even murder?
