Disappointing
27 October 2006 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Rick and Ruth are new tenants in an exclusive apartment building. To qualify, they had to be under thirty years of age and provide proof of good health.

Before long, Ruth starts to suspect there is more to the building than meets the eye. The custodian, Mr. Grover, has all sorts of unusual equipment in the basement. Rick discovers him installing a strange antenna and a new "exhaust system" for the air conditioning on the roof. Matters come to a head when Ruth believes she sees a third eye in the back of Mr. Grover's head. They soon start to suspect the building itself is an alien spacecraft and that they are the focus of some strange plot.

This made-for-television movie is comparatively brief and has the feel of a "Twilight Zone" episode. This is natural since the original story was by Richard Matheson, a core "Twilight Zone" writer. "Young Couples Only" is poorly executed and might have better a Zone episode rather than a television movie. Peter Lorre's talents are wasted. His presence seems to be more for name recognition rather than for his skill as an actor.
