Movie: The Skeleton Key

Lots of movie posts today. Had these in the hopper for a while.

I'm going to save us a little time.

Kate Hudson is a hospice nurse looking for something new. She answers a wanted ad for an on-site nurse out in the bayous, in an atmospheric old planatation house (same one from Dead Birds, I think). She shows up, creepy shit happens, hilarity ensues.

Skeleton Key isn't a blatant rip-off of Let's Scare Jessica to Death, but it comes close at times. The only scares here are from very obvious "jump" moments.

Atmosphere was great, music pretty good, ending was surprisingly interesting. Rest of the movie was derivative and not scary at all, unfortunately.

Do with that what you will.
