"I was bored with it. Went to a free advance showing without knowing the plot and thinking that it was a ghost story. It's just another"Family-moves-into-a-house-and-is-stalked-by-a-madman" movie with all the cliches included. Quaid and Stone's characters have got to be the dumbest couple on earth! Would you invite a creepy guy who broke into your home to dinner? Believe me, you will be rolling your eyes at a number of dumb things they do.
If you have something better to do with your time than to see this movie, by all means, do it."

"Cold Creek Manor was supposed to be a shocking thriller with a great cast. It wasnt. This movie had no thrills, no chills. One lame jump that happens after you completly sink into stupidity.
Sharon Stone and Dennis Quaid were average with their roles. The real stars were Juliette Lewis and Stephen Dorff. Stephen Dorff perfectly embodies a crazed man who deperately wants his house back. Juliette Lewis is amazing as his ... girlfriend who keeps you begging for her presence to continue endlessly.Cold Creek Manor tells the story of a couple who find that the city is destroying their lives and the lives of their children. One day they go searching for a home and stumble upon a fenced mansion, whose gate happens to open. They go inside the house and look around. A policewoman finds them and tells them they have to leave because they are tresspassing and if they go now she won't get them in trouble. They leave, but eventually buy the house. Dennis Quaid, who plays a documentary filmmaker, finds the previous occupants whole family history and decides this will be his next film, the story of Cold Creek Manor.One day Stephen Dorff comes wandering through the house and Quaids sons tells. They ask what he is doing and he explains that it was his house and he lost it due to late payments. Later, Dennis and Sharon are talking about redesigning and Dorff asks if they'll hire him to help since he knows the place best. They hire him. Soon things begin to turn crazy as Dorff shows signs that he wants the house that belongs to him and he'll do anything to get them out. Quaid at the same time begins to investigate the mysterious happenings of Cold Creek Manor and is shocked by his research.This movie is horrendously predictable and not a tad scary. I was hoping that this was going to be one of the best thrillers of the year, but that didnt happen. Wait for the video folks, this one, sadly, is not theater material."

"Once again the previews mislead the audience. I like most people I talked to thought it was a ghost story. No such luck. Dennis Quaid is great, Sharon Stone can't act her way out of a wet paper bag. I knew that going in but thought I'd suffer through her because it looked like a good movie. The movie was ok, just ok. As I said it's not a ghost story, but just another thriller. Don't get me wrong thrillers are great but this one was very slow to get going. Once it got going it was ok. I've heard of developing the characters but this took so long the movie was over. I should have saved my money. I could have watched this on TV when I had nothing else to do and nothing else on."
