“Keyhouse is filled with amazing keys. Listen for them. They whisper,” an ominous voice says as the youngest of the Locke children opens a door marked by an eerie silver skull.
The Locke family (played by Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones and Jackson Robert Scott) is then led on a fantasy-filled adventure as they attempt to unlock the secrets hidden behind each door with every new key found.
“Locke and Key” is adapted from the best-selling comic book series of the same name by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW comics. Other members of the cast include Bill Heck, Laysla De Oliveira, Sherri Saum, Thomas Mitchell Barnet, Griffin Gluck and Coby Bird. Felix Mallard guest stars.
