Cold Creek Manor, a review by Boomstick98
Cold Creek Manor (2003)
Plot: A family relocates from the city to a dilapidated house in the country that was once a grand estate. As they begin to renovate the place they discover their new home harbors secrets, conceals a horrific past, and may not be free of the former inhabitants completely.
My O: I guess I can include this one in this marathon. From reading the plot I thought it would be more of a horror film, but it turned out to just be a thriller. It wasn't a bad movie, I was just expecting something that it wasn't. I thought it would be sort of a haunted house story, but it really wasn't about the house at all. It was just about the former owner wanting it back. Stephen Dorff did a really great job with the character he had, but I have seen better performances from Dennis Quad. If your in the mood for a simple thriller you could do a lot worse than this film.

The Nurse, a review by addicted2dvd
Title: The Nurse
Movie Count: 47
TV Ep Count: 8
Time Started: 3:30pm
When her father kills himself and his family after being named in an embezzlement scandal, nurse Laura Harriman (Lisa Zane, Monkeybone) vows revenge on the man responsible. She soon gets her chance when his accuser (Michael Fairman, Dead Silence) suffers a stroke that leaves him paralyzed and mute - the perfect victim. After becoming his private nurse, the "angel of death" sets out on a psychotic killing spree that will complete her descent into madness and destroy an innocent family... one by one.
OK... this is different. According to the cover this movie is Rated R. But watching this movie... everything about it shouts TV Movie of the Week. Not saying that is a bad thing... I thought the story was pretty good. But the feel of the movie... the production value and the effects all screamed TV Movie. It even had the almost required TV Series actress in it. In this case Nancy Dussault (Muriel Rush on Too Close for Comfort)... who even though was starting to show her age looked much the same in this 1997 movie. If there wasn't for one case of cursing and one slit throat I would have been completely convinced it was a TV movie. But as I said... the story was pretty good. So I am not disappointed I got it. Is one I can enjoy again.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Season 1 Episode 17: First Kiss
When Harvey and Sabrina finally kiss on Valentine's Day, Harvey's turned into a frog, and Sabrina has to go through a series of tests to turn him back.
A fun episode. I liked the whole test thing they put Sabrina through... was worth a few chuckles.
