The Skeleton Key (2005) The nurse Caroline Ellis decides to quit her job in a hospital and work for a family in the swamps of Terrebone Parish, Louisiana, one hour far from New Orleans. The family lawyer Luke hires her for US$ 1,000.00 per week to take care of Ben Devereaux, the beloved husband of Violet Devereaux, who had a stroke and is totally paralyzed. Violet gives a skeleton key of the huge house to Caroline, and the curious young woman finds a secret creepy hoodoo room in a scary attic that belonged to a couple of sorcerers that worked in the house. Caroline, who does not believe in magic, decides to learn about hoodoo, and believes Violet put an evil spell on Ben. She decides to help the invalid man, and asks for help to Luke.

  • [from trailer] Luke: Good night, child.
  • Violet Devereaux: We've been waiting for you, Caroline.
  • Violet Devereaux: Child, I believe you broke my legs.
  • Caroline Ellis: I told you I wanted a black one this time. Luke: You know the black ones never stay. Beggars can't be choosers. I think it suits you beautifully. It's better than Violet or Grace, even. We'll get used to it. We always do.
  • Caroline Ellis: I saw the room. Violet Devereaux: What room? Caroline Ellis: The room you said you've never seen
Movie Trivia:
