      Ready for a thriller? The Skeleton Key is the movie for you! Based in New Orleans, our hero is a 25 year old lady who just wants to help people. Wracked with guilt, due to not being present when her own father died, she is determined that people who are terminally ill, will not die uncared for. She quits her ‘care home’ job, when she realizes how mechanical the deaths of patients are taken. She cares about people, and does not even understand how hospice can be just a ‘business’ to the people she is working for.

      Checking the newspaper, she finds an ad for a caretaker for a person who lives in the swamps, an hour away from New Orleans. She follows up on the ad, to find a huge mansion that is surrounded by the huge trees of

      the swamp lands, and with strange people. The woman who is the head of this household keeps referring to the fact that our hero is NOT old South.

      She dislikes that our hero even is ‘marked’……has a tatoo. The estate lawyer talks the lady into hiring this young lady, as she has already ‘not accepted’ so many people who have applied for the position. So, our hero begins her caring for the man who has ‘had a stroke’ so they say.

      He is totally paralyzed. He cannot speak, nor move at all, without help. Yet, he has a fear in his eyes that is obvious to our hero.

      Then, questions begin to LOOM! Why is the attic said to have been kept locked since 1962? How can THAT be, when the stricken man was said to have been ...

      • IN the attic when he HAD this ’stroke’? Our hero has the skeleton key to all the rooms in this mansion. Thirty rooms, and the key fits them all. Why are NO mirrors allowed in this mansion? There are obvious marks as to where they used to be! WHY is the stricken patient so ademant about trying to get away from this woman who claims to be his wife? The woman who claims to be his wife, Violet, behaves as if she is totally in love with her ’soul mate’, her one and only.

        Our young lady shares her concerns with a friend in New Orleans, and discovers that the attic that our hero has secretly entered, is a HooDoo room. Not Voodoo, as that is a religion. This is HooDoo going on, strickly magic! History of the mansion comes

        to light, all about the background of the horrible trajedy that happened during a party, one night, long ago.

        Black and white movies seem to flash by, rapidly, showing the anxiety of the night, the trajedy, the horror that occured on that fateful night, that has set the stage for the entire movie. It becomes clear that magic is going on in this mansion, but, for what?

        I will not ruin the tale for you. You must see it for yourself, and answer the twists and turns of this complicated horror.

        No bloody scenes, so, it is your mind that will be subject to the twists and turns, and I like that. I enjoyed this DVD. I think YOU will, too!

        Go get it! Know what your friends are talking about when they all are talking about it, and they WILL!
