This one was a bit of a surprise for me as I realised that I had gone to primary school with the star Portia de Rossi. I know that that won't have any real impact upon the review, however it was still an interesting observation. And it's not my fault that I don't watch Ally McBeal! 

The story behind this one seems like something more apt to fit in as a shorter tale in a Twilight Zone episode as opposed to being the focus of an entire movie. Take two attractive young people who are mugged whilst in the park and are rescued by some of the fittest elderly citizens you are likely to come across. 

The crazy thing is that these old folks present them with an opportunity too good to be true. It just so happens that they have an apartment to let at a very attractive price that's impossible to pass up on. Upon moving in, they realise that the place they call home is not all that it appears to be. The building is mainly occupied by older people who are intensely into fitness and essentially demand that anyone who lives under their roof do the same. The young  couples who do live there eventually disappear without a trace, leaving nothing but questions that the young couple cannot answer.  

As time goes by, secrets are uncovered that place their lives in jeopardy. Can they find out what is going on before they are added to the Glow? 

 The DVD has the appearance of a telemovie, and quite possibly it was one. The quality of the video is good but nothing special, and the audio suits the purpose of the film without going overboard.  

There were no extras on this disc. Overall, I'd say this movie is worth a look, but possibly more suited to the rental market.
