In search of the simpler life, ex-New Yorkers Cooper (Dennis Quaid) and Leah (Sharon Stone) Tilson pack up their kids and move into a recently repossessed mansion. Though it's a shambles, they dive into home improvement with zeal - only to discover their dream home could be more of a nightmare when the once-magnificent manor starts giving up its startling secrets.
Better than expected
- Cold Creek Manor review by Rob S
I have to say that my expectation of this film based on some reviews I'd read was not high, however it was actually quite good. Basically Denis Quaid's family move out of the city and buy a rundown house in the country which still has all the belongings of the previous occupants remaining. As renovations start Stephen Dorff arrives and after saying that he used to live there offers to help with the work. Basically he wants them out of the house for reasons later explained and a battle begins between Dorff and Quaid. This is not a horror but has some tense moments. It's not the best I've seen in this genre but it is certainly worth a rent if, like me, you are struggling to fill your movies list.
