    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    It's sad to see risk-taking director Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas, Hotel) do a generic thriller for a paycheck and then not even screw with the rules. show more

    Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

    As haunted-house thrillers go, Cold Creek Manor is more ludicrous than the average but at the same time more handsomely produced. show more

    Will leave audiences yawning rather than gasping from fear. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    A gothic thriller called Cold Creek Manor extrudes an 80-minute idea -- I may be overgenerous here -- into 118 minutes that feel like an eternity. show more

    The jolts are mild and too easily anticipated. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    It's discouraging to witness a filmmaker who clearly yearns for the indie world yield to the temptations of mindless movie manufacturing. At least Figgis made it as soulless as possible. show more

    Perhaps Figgis proves his unconventionality with Cold Creek Manor after all, creating a thriller without resorting to the genre's usual bag of tricks. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    The film is a disquieting and often very funny examination of yuppie unease in the country. The problem is, it's disguised as a dopey suspense thriller. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Figgis brings strong visual imagination to the first hour, but he can't rescue Richard Jefferies's screenplay from plot holes bigger than the manor itself. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    [Figgis] has made a thriller that thrills us only if we abandon all common sense. Of course preposterous things happen in all thrillers, but there must be at least a gesture in the direction of plausibility, or we lose patience. show more
