It's been over a decade since Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's award-winning Locke & Key comic books were published in 2008. It even took as long till plans were set in motion to adapt their horror story for either television or film. After many failed attempts and a lot of broken promises, fans are finally going to get what they've been waiting for. The Locke and Key Netflix series is officially upon us. The show was co-created by Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House) and Carlton Cuse (Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan). Locke & Key follows the story of Nina and her kids as they move to their ancestral home, Keyhouse after the kids' father was murdered. Judging from the trailer, it seems like the show dives straight into the story rather than beat around the bush. It shows the Locke children as they find a set of magical keys in the house that unlock doors leading to all sorts of magical adventures. Keyhouse is brought to life through a combination of rich production design and well-made CGI. The Locke and Key Netflix cast feature Jackson Robert Scott, Connor Jessup, and Emilia Jones where they'll play the role of the Locke siblings. Darby Stanchfield will be Nina, their mother. The Locke and Key Netflix release date is on Friday, February 7, 2020. For people who are still undecided on whether they'll watch the show or not, then let us help you with that. Here's a list of the best reasons why you should watch Locke & Key on Netflix!
Locke & Key is gruesome, gut-wrenching, a combination of beautiful, scary, and sweet. All those things account for why it's a total joy to read and can be considered as one of the best horror comics ever made. It follows the adventures Tyler, Bode, and Kinsey as they explore the strange yet beautiful Keyhouse Manor. The Manor itself is home to a couple of mind-bending keys that are inherently connected to the family as well as the tragedy that brought them to the house.
We know there's a lot of great prestige TV shows, but there aren't enough horror shows. It's a good thing that the genre landscape is slowly transforming wherein platforms like Shudder have been doing fairly well. The incredible Creepshow reinvention and Channel Zero are some of their projects, to name a few. Even Netflix has offered similar shows like Dark and The Haunting of Hill House. Locke & Key is a perfect addition to this list and something that more people should look forward to.
For people who aren't aware, Locke & Key is a pretty strange book. We mean that in the best way, of course. It's full of mind-bending imagery and psychedelic concepts that span centuries and timelines. It's a horror story that has ghosts, time travel, dimension-hopping, murder and that's not even the half of it. We're lucky that Netflix isn't scared of taking on weird and experimental projects. So fans can expect a fitting adaptation of the popular IDW comic.
One of the most exciting things about this upcoming series is how the creative team will bring Gabriel Rodriguez's vision for Keyhouse Manor and the Locke kids to life. There's no doubt that it will be hard to express the unique, trippy, and boundary-pushing work done in this book. From the amazing character moments and staging to the broad magical world that he creates within Keyhouse itself. Locke & Key is ordered chaos just waiting to be brought to the screen.
