Cold Creek Manor was a movie that kept promising a payoff for watching but never delivered. I am not just talking about a big finish – although the ending was a huge letdown. I am talking about mystery, intrigue, using your imagination… all of those things that make a thriller… well… thrilling. Nothing else to say… it looked like maybe it was based on a good story, but it never made it to the screen. Without reading the original I cannot tell if it was a bad adaptation or just a poor job of directing. Either way, this is a rental for a night when you are bored and there is nothing on but MAD TV or COPS. I take that back… COPS is better.

RATING 6 out of 10
