Cold Creek Manor (2003)

Cooper Tilson and his family are fed up with the busy and chaotic city life so they decide to move out to the serene countryside, where they restore an old, decaying mansion. While settling in they meet Dale, who used to live on the estate and offers to fix up the swimming pool because he needs the work. So Cooper reluctantly agrees, but is suspicious of Dale. Soon after, strange and awful things start to happen; deadly snakes start popping up inside the house, then his daughter's pony ends up dead lying in the pool. And Cooper believes that Dale is the one whose behind it all, as they soon discover secrets of his violent past. So-so psychological thriller; really dull at times, the characters are uninteresting but Dorff is particularly creepy. Starring Dennis Quaid, Sharon Stone, Stephen Dorff, Juliette Lewis, Christopher Plummer, Kristen Stewart 5/10
