    A Thinking-Man's Thriller

    This film is not technically a horror movie. There is no gore or violence, so people watching it expecting Saw VIII will be disappointed. Rather, it is a movie that plays out more like a ghost story from long ago. The filming location is gorgeous - deep in the bayous of Louisiana. It certainly sets the very creepy, mysterious tone of the movie. Skeleton Key definitely requires you to think. You have to think carefully and remember clues given throughout the film to understand the ending. And, wow, what an ending! I saw this in the theater and my jaw dropped at the twist. Definitely one of the best thrillers to come out this decade. And when it's over, it makes you want to visit the Bayou!

    Suspenseful and chilling with a surprising twist

    The Skeleton Key is a unique watchers experience, with many jumps and thrills during its 115 minute time. With special characters and a good storyline, it is about a hospice worker helping an old mute man, and discovering something supernatural is in the mansion, and to escape this evil, she must face an unspeakable curse. The movie was suspenseful and I was on the edge of my seat, rooting Caroline on.

    Scary, suspenseful and cool

    The Skeleton Key is about a woman facing a supernatural evil while staying at a old and desolate house. Uncovering the secret of the houses owner, she must venture into a world of voodoo, deception and mystery in this chilling tale done well. KATE HUDSON DOES AN EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE ALONG WITH GENA ROWLANDS, PETER SAARSGARD AND JOHN HURT. Wonderfully done and chilling!

    Chilling and Suspenseful

    This movie was amazing and frightening. It's about a woman living in an old mansion where she faces ghosts and voodoo, where she must discover the truth behind the house's past...and herself. It was amazing, scary and very good. It was scary and suspenseful, and Kate Hudson gave a superb performance, and also Peter Saarsgard, and Caroline's friend in the movie. A must see flick about a supernatural evil, it out does The Others and The Grudge. Must see! 10 A+ ****
