The Skeleton Key

Kate Hudson gets a job as a live-in nurse for an invalid (John Hurt) in spooky ol' New Orleans. Since this is the movies, it ain't long before the voodoo starts coming out of the woodwork. The cast is impressive (add Gena Rowlands and Peter Sarsgaard to the roster) and the film (directed by Brit Iain Softley) looks gorgeous. Unfortunately, the hokey script sticks too slavishly to the psychological thriller conventions to emerge as anything other than your typical sweat-soaked Southern Gothic haunted house saga. 104 minutes PG-13.
