"Old Folks at Home"
is an episode of Chillers starring
Anthony Perkins, Brigitte Fossey, and Jean-Pierre Bacri.
A yuppie couple takes in an octogenarian husband and wife from the local old folks' home, but the twosome proves to be more difficult to live with than expected.
A young couple decides to take in and old couple as an act of kindness and social conscientiousness. But good feelings turn sour when the homeowners begin to feel trapped in their own home. It seems that the "underpriveledged seniors" have some quirky habits that create havoc and leave the young couple in a state of exasperation. When the well-intentioned couple attempts to evict the seniors, a social worker reminds them that they are contracted to keep them in their home. This story is well acted, entertaining, and humorous. I found this episode worthwhile and mildly suspenseful. On a personal note, I have taken in homeless friends on occasion and was reminded constantly of my own battles with my ungrateful guests while watching this humorous but all-too-realistic portrayal of good intentions gone awry!
