Review – Cold Creek Manor

This movie left me bitterly disappointed, and I blame the marketing campaign at least in part for letting me down. The ads for this clunker made it look like a haunted house picture of some kind, but instead it turned out to be sort of a Cape Fear thing in which a happy family is menaced by a ne’er-do-well with a not-entirely-justified grudge against them. Trouble is, I (generally at least) like the kind of movie I thought I was going to get. And worse, I hate the kind of movie this turned out to be. The gaggle of former-A-list actors didn’t help matters much. By the time our ex-con antagonist has murdered the girl’s horse and left it floating in the pool, this production had worn out what little welcome it might otherwise have enjoyed. Wish I’d skipped it
