The Skeleton Key Reviews
January 19, 2015
Normally not might kind of film, but this supernatural thriller was quite entertaining and the twist ending sealed the deal.

I just saw the ending and hated it...that's probably all I need to see.

A true symbol of an archetype movie of voodoo and bad witchcraft... Full of twist with a very original ending... And that is because I admire Ehren Kruger as a writer... Great job sir Ehren...

The film creates an eerie atmosphere and sports an engaging cast of characters, but this is undermined by a drab lead performance in Kate Hudson and a poorly executed third act that leaves this hoodoo thriller lacking in anything truly scary or unnerving.

The ending is amazing. It's too bad the rest is mediocre.

Skeleton Key is an interesting mystery thriller that leaves you guessing. The ending is superb, I dont know if I would call it a "twist" ending, but its definitely one you have to think about to understand. I would have rated it higher, however, the pacing of the film is rather sluggish for most of the film til stuff starts happening at the end All in all, a pretty good watch though.

It'd be cool if it was interesting, problem is it's a snore-fest.

A hospice nurse working in a plantation home finds herself involved in the mystery of the old house's past. Aside from creepy moments, this is formulaic and dull.

A fantastic idea that never really materializes because in the end so much of it is just so unbelievable. The chain of events in any horror or suspense movie is already far fetched, and this somehow manages to even surpass that already expanded realm of possibility.

In This Movie There is No Ghost That will Scare You, It's The Tension and the Intensity That Will Scare you!

The always beautiful Kate Hudson stars in this interesting and creepy supernatural Drama from universal pictures....which doesn't lack in mystery or suspense and keeps you eerily guessing from start to finish!

Even though I'm not a big fan of movies that feature the occult or voodoo or "swamp" horror for that matter, this is a creepy, moody surprise. Kate Hudson and Gena Rowlands are pretty much a two-woman show, and John Hurt does some decent gasping and grunting in an effort to communicate his knowledge of the evil that lurks within the old mansion.
There are some surprising twists and turns but it's a mostly low key affair. There isn't a lot of action, but the characters keep things interesting and there are some scary images and good editing that keep you on edge.
