I am looking for an old scifi movie, described in the title. I watched it a few years in 2009 (I think) when I was looking for scifi movies to rent (Watched in English). The plot is on some aliens getting trapped on earth and later, to survive, they disguise themselves completely as humans.

When aliens come to civilisation, one 'real' human spies on the human-disguised aliens. Also a magical pool that gives these aliens energy or something related. This pool is able to make people young again (sortof like a healing Fountain of Youth).

Can't remember anything else, details a bit hazy, but the ending is probably where the humans help the aliens return"" Thank you in advance if you can remember this!

    Sounds like a Scientology induction video. – Toby Jun 8 '17 at 14:49
  • @Toby. Upvoted the whole question just for your comment :) – Mad Physicist Jun 8 '17 at 15:11
  • The pool itself had no special properties, it was just a swimming pool. The aliens used the pool to temporarily house their cocoons; it was the cocoons (or their contents) which emanated a life force that rejuvenated the human visitors/interlopers. – Anthony X Sep 2 '18 at 18:14

Cocoon

enter image description here

This movie was released in 1985, so it’s pretty old.

From Wikipedia, we have the aliens disguising themselves as humans:

About 10,000 years ago, peaceful aliens from the planet Antarea set up an outpost on the planet Earth, on an island later known to mankind as Atlantis. When Atlantis sank, twenty aliens were left behind, kept alive in large rock-like cocoons at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Now a group of Antareans have returned to Earth to collect them. Disguising themselves as humans, they rent a house with a swimming pool, and charge the water with “life force” to give the cocooned Antareans energy to survive the trip home. They charter a boat from a local captain named Jack, who helps them retrieve the cocoons. Jack likes Kitty, a beautiful woman from the team who chartered his boat. When he spies on her while she undresses in her cabin, Jack is shocked when he discovers she is an alien. After the aliens reveal themselves to him and explain what’s going on, he decides to help them.

And the people swimming in it and becoming youthful:

Three of its residents, Ben, Arthur, and Joe, often trespass to swim in the pool next door, thinking the house to be unoccupied. They absorb some of the life force, making them feel younger and stronger. Eventually caught in the act, they are given permission to use the pool by the Antarean leader, Walter, on the condition that they do not touch the cocoons or tell anybody else about it. Rejuvenated with youthful energy, the three men begin to let the advantages of the pool take hold as they are relieved of their ailments (such as Joe’s cancer miraculously disappearing and Ben’s vision becoming clear, allowing him to be able to drive a car once again).

    Is there any twist to this movie? from the summary it sounds boring. – Dennis Christian Jun 8 '17 at 5:58

    @Dennis Christian indeed there's a twist. But the main attraction of the movie is the no longer youthful actors having the time of their life. – Bookeater Jun 8 '17 at 6:14

    If you think this sounds boring, wait until you read about Cocoon 2. – Steve Smith Jun 8 '17 at 9:34

    «released in 1985, so it’s pretty old.» Be nice. Not everyone here is still wet behind the ears. – JDługosz Jun 8 '17 at 14:52

    @DennisChristian not if you were a 13-year old boy. It had a three second nude scene with one of the female aliens in her human form. – Kevin Jun 8 '17 at 21:02
