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

A Very Interesting Glow!
27 October 2003 | by (Santa Clara, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this TV movie on Lifetime the other day and was hooked from the beginning. Great casting, well acted, nicely paced, interesting characters, and very suspenseful. It kind of reminded me of 'Rosemary's Baby' meets 'The Firm'.....better watch out for the elders hooked on brightly colored health drinks....they can really pack a punch!! Above average TV Flick ***.
