    Synopsis


    The Skeleton Key
    A young woman discovers a terrible secret while caring for an elderly man in this supernatural thriller. Caroline (Kate Hudson) is a care provider for the aged who is hired away from the hospice where she works by Violet Devereaux (Gena Rowlands). Violet needs someone to help take care of her husband, Ben (John Hurt), who is in poor health and doesn't have long to live. Violet and Ben live in a decaying rattletrap mansion not far from New Orleans, and as she settles into her work, Caroline spends her spare time exploring the house. It isn't long before Caroline discovers evidence that suggests Ben and Violet are members of a sinister voodoo cult, and that ghosts walk in the Devereaux mansion. The Skeleton Key also stars Peter Sarsgaard and Joy Bryant. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Great Story

      I give this movie 4 stars for its genre, for what I have seen so far. For a thriller/mystery, it was worth the watch. Now, it's not the best movie ever, but it keeps you thinking! It's story reminds me of The Ring, though the main points of the movie are quite different. The protagonist in this movie looks a lot like Naomi Watts... and is dangerously bold and inquisitive to the point where she tackles on the supernatural solo. This redundancy keeps me from giving it 5 stars. This movie is about a woman who is hired to help take care of an elderly man, who can barely function on his own, in his home... The house has some hidden secret haunting it, and the protagonist is determined to figure it out. The secret involves a legend of slavery. It's a good watch overall.

      This is one of the best occult/voo-doo films on the market! If you liked films, such as, Angel Heart and The Serpent and the Rainbow, you'll love this movie. Great plot, great acting, intrigue, and even great special features. (Which is a rarity these days.) I highly recommend purchasing this film, because you'll want to watch it more than once.

      Keeps you guessing the whole time. Why is the old man so afraid of his sister?
