This is the kind of movie where when you see a stain glass window at the start you know that in about 80 minutes someone is going to fall through it.

Cold Creek Manor is cautious to the point of inert.

If you want a good thriller about a weirdo who creates trouble for a family ... rent "Cape Fear." Either version.

As scary and predictable as a trip to the supermarket.

Try as it might to hold our attention, it disappoints at every turn, ending in a whimper rather than a bang.

A barely disguised rehash of Straw Dogs.

A thriller as tedious as 'Cold Creek Manor' benefits from a 'glass is half-full' philosophy: Each minute we spend in unspeakable boredom means we're one minute closer to the end.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

There's a certain poetic irony in the fact that Figgis' production company is called Red Mullet, because the supposed red herrings tossed into this non-mystery are mullet indeed.

... a good-looking thriller by an excellent director with strong performances from Sharon Stone and Dennis Quaid -- yet it's oddly flat, with an exasperating plot, lots of strange turns and hardly any legitimate scares.

Cold Creek Manor is one of those cases of the trailer making it look a whole lot scarier than it actually is.

Imagine watching someone set up an elaborate chain of dominoes with a button at the end. The idea is that the last domino will hit the button. Now imagine the person who set it all up walks past the dominoes and pushes the button, and nothing happens.

Any chance at building tension is quickly lost when whatever predicament the family finds itself in is wrapped up in the blink of an eye.

Quaid and Stone look utterly ridiculous when they scream, a major debit in a movie of this type.

Cold Creek Manor may not be the worst movie of the stinker season, but it's a strong contender for the dumbest.
