Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This is essentially a haunted-house horror flick that starts off with effectively eerie scenes but devolves into a forced and mildly ridiculous ghost story.
Rotten: A well-intentioned horror film that is weighted down by stellar cast members who for the most part act as if they don't want to be there.
Rotten: Though the story is as creaky as a plantation porch, Iain Softley's lushly atmospheric The Skeleton Key does offer a few nifty twists on the classic 'woman in peril' picture.
Fresh: A diverting, stylish thriller that, despite pivoting on that and other whoppers, deserves credit for creating an authentic, original vibe.
I love this movie!
This movie is seriously awesome. It's very suspenseful and scary, and it all leads up to one of the craziest twist endings I've ever seen. It's an underrated thriller that deserves so much more attention than it's been given since it's release over 3 years ago. My advice: buy, don't rent. It's a movie you'll want to watch over and over again (I know I have!)
