Reviews (2) of The Skeleton Key

A creepy thriller with a decent twist. - The Skeleton Key review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
08/01/2006

The Skeleton Key revolves around the character of Caroline Ellis, a bored hospice carer. Unhappy with her current job she replies to a newspaper job advert which takes her to the middle of Louisiana's bayou to care for stroke victim Ben Devereaux. Almost at once strange things begin to happen which seem to lead to an area of the attic that even the house's main skeleton key can't open. Overall this is a well directed and creepy southern gothic thriller set within a house which just oozes the creepiness of an old dilapidated home. A decent amount of tension builds up as Caroline searches for the truth and the ending involves a clever twist to the tale.
