The Tilsons move into a recently repossessed mansion in the sticks of New York State. Once grand and elegant, the Cold Creek Manor is now a shambles, but Cooper and Leah have plenty of time to renovate. All’s well until a series of terrifying incidents at the house lead the Tilsons to wonder who used to live in their new home — and to discover what dark secrets are hidden inside.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Suspense Thriller - A thriller that's very short on thrills, especially considering the nearly two hour running time. Lots of time is spent setting up the story and still you don't know why things happen. There are no plot twists and nothing unexpected happens. There are also many times you'll be saying to yourself "they wouldn't do that" or "that's so far-fetched."

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average

The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Below Average "...a thriller that thrills us only if we abandon all common sense. Of course preposterous things happen in all thrillers, but there must be at least a gesture in the direction of plausibility, or we lose patience.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "Though deceptively positioned as a haunted house film, this thriller is resolutely grounded in reality, or at least a version of reality filtered through the paranoia of city slickers whose ideas about the boondocks owes more to DELIVERANCE (1972) and THE HILLS HAVE EYES (1978) than Thoreau's Walden. All of which would be fine if Figgis managed to work up any real suspense, but the film slogs towards its inevitable mano-a-mano showdown like something up to its knees in mud.''

Newsday  Full Review
Average "There's too much to dismiss as bad filmmaking - including the rumbling piano bass that keeps punctuating the climax of the film, and the rainstorm that arrives right on schedule. Dale mugs the local sheriff (Dana Eskelson) but doesn't take her gun? (See: hammers.) No, "Cold Creek Manor" is bad on purpose. It's just not bad enough."

Premiere Magazine Full Review
Below Average "...clunky and riddled with clichés from start to finish, which is a shame because the cast is able and is led by Oscar-nominated director Mike Figgis. The actors can't overcome the trite material, though, and in the end, it seems too many clichés really do spoil the film.  ...the film is something of a pop-psychology thriller (not a ghost story).  ...the ending is apparent within the first half hour of the movie. There are no twists, no turns. There is nothing left to the imagination, no guesswork necessary."

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Not to good at all. Virtually no real high opinions and lots of low and very low opinions. Obviously very few enjoyed Cold Creek Manor so I don't recommend seeing it. Your probability of truly enjoying it is just too low. I do think it would make a decent video rental, but only if you've seen all the other better videos out at that time.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
It's an OK movie, but I seriously doubt that most will feel they've gotten their money's worth if they pay full ticket price to see this very slow, mildly entertaining movie. There are a couple of suspenseful moments, but that's not nearly enough for an almost two hour movie.

At most Cold Creek Manor is worth a matinee or see it at the second run theaters. Probably the best way to see it is on video in a few months.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Finally putting an end to their days as slaves to the hustle-and-bustle of city life, Gothamites Cooper Tilson (DENNIS QUAID) and his wife, Leah (SHARON STONE), pack up their kids and all their possessions and move into a recently repossessed mansion in the sticks of New York State. Once grand and elegant, the Cold Creek Manor is now a shambles, but Cooper and Leah have plenty of time to renovate. All's well until a series of terrifying incidents at the house lead the Tilsons to wonder who used to live in their new home — and to discover what dark secrets are hidden inside.
