Critic Reviews of "The Skeleton Key"Ebert & RoeperAugust 15, 2005
This is a moody, creepy thriller with some genuinely scary moments and a couple of twists that took me completely by surprise.Washington PostAugust 12, 2005
The Skeleton Key delivers on all formulaic counts, except one: It never serves up any truly nightmare-inspiring scares.Washington PostAugust 12, 2005
A diverting, stylish thriller that, despite pivoting on that and other whoppers, deserves credit for creating an authentic, original vibe.USA TodayAugust 12, 2005
This is essentially a haunted-house horror flick that starts off with effectively eerie scenes but devolves into a forced and mildly ridiculous ghost story.Toronto StarAugust 12, 2005
Criminal waste of talent.Seattle TimesAugust 12, 2005
There's lots of bad stuff brewing on the bayou in this occasionally scary but more often silly movie, which wastes some good actors along the way.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
A genuinely creepy offering in a world filled with contrived bland dramas posing as thrillers.Eye for FilmDecember 07, 2007
The only real mystery ... is what is this great ensemble cast doing in such a poorly executed movie?eFilmCritic.comOctober 31, 2007
The voodoo lore is sketchy (it can't hurt unbelievers, except when it can), the plot obviously little but build-up to the big reveal.Long Island PressMarch 31, 2007
Reinvigorates the supernatural thriller genre with a much needed infusion of new ideas and just plain nasty, digital-free mischief.Film Journal InternationalMarch 01, 2007
A paint-by-numbers supernatural thriller that's more interesting for its locations than for its story.Christianity TodayOctober 11, 2006
Pretty much what you would expect from the screenwriter of disappointing films such as Scream 3, Reindeer Games and Arlington Road.
