Los Angeles Times - 09/19/2003
"With COLD CREEK MANOR, gifted and idiosyncratic Mike Figgis has sophisticated fun with the old-dark-house thriller genre and brings to it a subtly satirical edge..."
After a succession of films boldly exploring the possibilities of digital video (TIMECODE, HOTEL), Mike Figgis returns to more traditional narrative terrain with this atmospheric thriller. Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone star as Cooper and Leah Tilson, a New York City couple who decide to move to the country in order to provide their children with a safer life (Kristen Stewart and Ryan Wilson). But they get more than they bargained for when they purchase Cold Creek Manor, a gigantic, crumbling house that has a murky, dangerous past. That past shows up at their front door one day in the form of Dale Massie (Stephen Dorff), an ex-convict who lost the house while incarcerated. At first, Dale's presence is a comfort to the Tilsons, but Cooper begins to sense that something is amiss after studying home videos and photographs that were left behind. Sure enough, his attempts to keep Dale off his property only anger the bitter psychopath, triggering a relentless assault that endangers the lives of the entire Tilson family. Figgis' taut thriller features solid lead performances by Quaid and Stone, as well as standout supporting turns from Dorff, Juliette Lewis, and Christopher Plummer.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
Cold Creek Manor
COLD CREEK MANOR is a heart-pounding thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat in tension-filled suspense. Wanting to escape city life for the saner, safer countryside, New Yorkers Cooper Tilson (Dennis Quaid), his wife Leah (1995 Golden Globe winner Sharon Stone, Best Actress, CASINO), 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 (Stephen 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.
