Consensus: The plot of Cold Creek Manor is too predictable and contrived to generate suspense.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

The only things haunting this movie are cliches.

Stephanie Zacharek

At the beginning, Cold Creek Manor almost makes you believe it could deliver all that and more. Instead, it follows the weary, well-worn path of so many contemporary scare-fests.

Steve Newton
Georgia Straight

There are no surprises at all in this totally predictable mistake of a movie.

'You should've stayed in New York,' Dorff warns, long before which the audience has realized it should've stayed home to snuggle up instead with Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs.

Reilly Capps
Washington Post

The whole thing is a waste of good professional filmmaking.

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

Director Mike Figgis also composed the score, which during the tense scenes merely sounds like a two-year-old incessantly banging on random piano keys.

Richard Roeper
Ebert & Roeper

... 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.

Claudia Puig
USA Today

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

Nick Schager
Lessons of Darkness

Supremely listless and scare-free nonsense.

Corny and predictable, but easy watching. Dorff plays the bad guy reasonably well, no boring parts, but could have been helped along with more suspense..

The snakes really freaked me out. And the weird thing is that I am not afraid of snakes in real life. I jumped so much during those scenes though...
Candy Rose
Tense thriller about a family who move into their new home. They are soon targeted by the old tenant who has a dark secret and wants them out. Good cast.
Lewis C.
Despite the presence of Juliette Lewis, Dennis Quaid, and Sharon Stone, Cold Creek Manor just comes off as a made-for-tv movie. A boring made-for-tv movie.… More
