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

Pretty standard TV horror
31 August 2002 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Let's see... A young couple get set up in a posh apartment with incredibly cheap rent. It's run by a group of old people but all the tenants are young and athletic. Tenants begin "moving out" unexpectedly. Wife gets suspicious...

Is there anyone who can't write the script from here on out?

Not really bad, despite its predictability. It was nice to see Dean Cain again in his post- "Lois and Clark" career. And it's always good to see old-timers like Hal Linden and Dina Merrill.

Nothing special, but an okay time-waster if there's nothing else on.
