Skeleton Key, The (2005)
Movie Review by The Cryptkeeper

Skeleton Key, The (2005) Set in pre-hurricane ravaged New Orleans, Skeleton Key is littered with local Cajun culture... with Hoodoo being at the forefront. Hoodoo is similar in origin to Voodoo, but it is not the same thing. Hoodoo is a traditional magic, whose goal is to basically allow people access to supernatural forces to influence their daily lives. Personally, I think they took liberties with making Hoodoo more like Voodoo in this flick... but I guess I am just splitting hairs. At any rate... Kate Hudson is a hospice worker who takes on the task of making dying people's journey to the other side more comfortable. She takes on a new job out in the swamps where it appears the old man she is caring for has suffered a stroke and is going to die soon. His wife has been taking care of him, but hired Hudson with the help of their estate attorney. The wife gives her a skeleton key which opens every door in the old house. Ripe with curiosity, Hudson traipses through the house in a presumptuous and sneaky manner... which opens up all kinds of trouble. I guess the movie would have died early on if not for her curiosity... but she just seemed too curious to me. She finds her way into the attic and stumbles across a strange room full of Hoodoo paraphernalia... and this peaks her curiosity even more. She begins to uncover the secrets that the old house holds, as well as the strange past of its former, and current inhabitants. While the ending didn't totally surprise me, I thought it was a good one. While the movie is kindof moody and slow, I still think it is a pretty good rental.
