Locke and Key REVIEW:
After Rendell Locke’s (Bill Heck) murder, the Locke family moves to their ancestral home, the key house in Matheson.
While Rendell and Duncan Locke (Aaron Ashmore) spent their childhood in the key house, they never told the family about any memory. The family settles in the big mansion the smallest of the Locke siblings, Bode (Jackson Robert Scott) is the most excited to explore the estate.
Bode meets, what he calls as Echo (Laysla De Oliveira) in the adjoining well house. To his surprise, Echo tells him that the key house is filled with hidden keys. Echo tells Bode to be alert and listen very carefully as the keys whisper.
Soon the Locke siblings Kinsey (Emilia Jones), Tyler (Connor Jessup) and Bode discover different magical keys that unlock various superpowers and abilities. The family finds out that an evil soul (a demon) is after them to retain the keys.
The Locke siblings face the evil and set on a journey to find about what connects them with their father. There’s more to what is apparent about the keys. And there are things that can’t be undone.
