Storyline

Wanting to escape city life for the countryside, New Yorkers Cooper Tilson (Quaid), his wife Leah (Stone) and their two children move into a dilapidated old mansion still filled with the possessions of the previous family. Turning it into their dream house soon becomes a living nightmare when the previous owner (Dorff) shows up, and a series of terrifying incidents lead them on a spine-tingling search for clues to the estate's dark and lurid past...

Could have been a decent film
4 April 2010 | by m-vaskesSee all my reviews

I was actually pleased with the film in the beginning. Because of the low rating and poor reviews I was expecting something quite bad, but I hoped that it might be entertaining nonetheless. Well, I was wrong with both my assumptions.

The acting is nothing remarkable, but it isn't irritating either. The directing is not bad. One could expect at least that, after all the film's director is Mike Figgis, who also directed Leaving Las Vegas. On the other hand, so far Figgis has not managed to achieve the success of Leaving Las Vegas with any of his other films and Cold Creek Manor is no exception. It is actually worse than most of his other attempts. On the good side - I thought the film was going to be quite cheesy and/or over the top, but the storytelling and photography are decent and unostentatious.

However, the film has one major flaw: while it is not told in such a bad way, the story itself is simply stupid. It actually manages to avoid some clichés, though all themes and models are well known and have been told hundreds of times already. The real problem is that it is just plain boring. I don't mind slow paced films, as long as there is something to be told. But that's not the case with Cold Creek Manor. It is neither thrilling, nor frightening and is absolutely unengaging. And the ending (the "geronimo" moment in particular) is ridiculous.

I wouldn't recommend that film, it is simply boring (or at least unremarkable) on all levels.
