Single father Kyle MacLachlan is on a camping trip with his son. They wind up in the a nicelittle town, and an accident forces them to stay there longer than planned. The townspeople seemto be inordinately interested in who MacLachlan is, and they also have something to hide. Thefountain of youth, you see, is located here, and the locals will stop at nothing to protect theirsecret. Though very much a made-for-TV movie, and no classic of the field, it is somewhat betterthan …ots of the other such films being dumped on the market these days.
The sound is in 2.0, and it gets the job done. The music is pretty constant, limiting the soundeffects. What sound effects there are, however, have pretty good surround presence, though Ican’t really say that a full environment is created. The dialogue is crisp and clear.
As with so many other TV transfers, the picture is a bit on the grainy side. There’s even theoccasional speckle on this print. The blacks are very good, though, as are the contrasts. By andlarge, the grain notwithstanding, the atmospheric photography is quite well served.
Nuthin’ special, but nuthin’ terrible either. An okay 93 minutes, though you could do bettertoo.
