The script, by Richard Jefferies, brings absolutely nothing new to the thriller table.

Another one of those movies where a demented fiend devotes an extraordinary amount of energy to setting up scenes for the camera.

The ill-advised mansion purchase is just the first in an endless series of blunders in this half-baked thriller.
| Original Score: 2/4
September 19, 2003
There is nothing here that is too obvious that Figgis and company cannot make more obvious. Nor is any device too low for the filmmaker to eagerly stoop.
September 22, 2003
... 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.

At first, I thought Cold Creek was proceeding deliberately, but then I realized it's just boring.

despite dead horses, crazed hicks and plagues of snakes, the only truly horrifying moment here is the hint at the end that there may be a sequel.
May 3, 2005
Supremely listless and scare-free nonsense.

I don't think there is even one thing that happens that I didn't foresee. It's the sort of movie that makes dumb guys like me feel smart.

The underlining homoerotic subtext gets muddy, then washed away, in the creek.

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

September 12, 2003
Richard Jefferies' script groans under the weight of ridiculous situations and atrocious dialogue.

September 21, 2003
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 does his level best with a lame character, but Stone sinks under the weight of a thankless role.

All of the characters behave like idiots at every turn, even when the facts are staring them in the face.

September 27, 2003
Manor trickles along unconvincingly without once dispatching any genuine sense of supreme sadistic surprises. For this revelation alone, Cold Creek Manor certainly needs to be condemned.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 19, 2003
One of those well-made movies that can't find the elusive element that turns a lukewarm thriller into a scorcher.
Full Review| Original Score: 2.5/4
October 9, 2003
One of those bad movies that will take its stars two good movies to recover from.
