The Skeleton Key 2005

Set largely in the dark atmospheric backwoods just outside of New Orleans, The Skeleton Key stars Hudson as Caroline, a live-in nurse hired to care for an elderly woman's ailing husband in their home ... a foreboding and decrepit Gothic mansion in the Louisiana delta. Intrigued by the enigmatic couple, their mysterious and secretive ways and their rambling house, Caroline beings to explore the old mansion. Armed with a skeleton key that unlocks every door, she discovers a hidden attic room that holds a deadly and terrifying secret. Peter Sarsgaard portrays Luke, the local attorney working on the couple's estate, and Joy Bryant plays Jill, Caroline's best friend. (read more)

The Skeleton Key Movie Review by Melanie (2/16/2007)

I love just about every part of this movie. I think the fact that I am from where this movie is placed helps. I was born in a little town, New Iberia, where my grandparents live. Southern Louisiana is unlike any other place I have ever been to. There are devout Catholics mixed with Voodoo and Hoodoo. Mix this with the...

The Skeleton Key Movie Review by Zara (1/26/2007)

A Lousiana tale of voodoo and witchcraft, all bound together by Kate Hudson looking her tip-top best. (This was filmed right after she gave birth to her son and so she's packing an extra 2-3 pounds on her frame which suits her well.)

I hated that one of my favorite actors, Peter Sarsgaard, got wrapped up in this nonsense....

The Skeleton Key Movie Review by AJ (7/7/2006)

You know, I wonder what Anne Rice thought of this movie. Rice so often writes Gothic/southern horror tales set in New Orleans (what it was before Katrina, at least), and in particular, The Skeleton Key reminded me of Rice's The Witching Hour. The plots are different, but they're both about mysticism in a magnificent old...

The Skeleton Key Movie Review by Tony (7/1/2006)

Universal Pictures' The Skeleton Key

"The Skeleton Key" is usually fodder for forgettable spooky flicks, but thanks to a rainy New Orleans, good performances by the actors, and an interesting twist, we get a pretty neat supernatural thriller that's worth seeing.

Kate Hudson plays an updated and mature version of her role...

The Skeleton Key Movie Review by Joe (5/15/2006)

When I first saw previews for this movie, I was slightly wary due to the fact that Kate Hudson (Almost Famous, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) was starring in it. I wondered how she would handle starring in a psychological thriller (I don't consider movies like these horror, having been grown up in the 80s I consider true...
