The Trailer For New Netflix Horror Series 'Locke & Key' Looks Seriously Creepy
There's a lot of expectation riding on the series, which is an adaptation of the bestselling comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW comics.
Landing on the entertainment platform on 7th February, the story follows the lives of the three Locke siblings.
After their father is murdered in mysteries circumstances, the youngsters move with their mother to their ancestral home, Keyhouse.
The trailer shows the family driving through a snowy, windswept landscape before pulling up to their new home.
"I could never get your father to talk about his life here," murmers their mother, as they step through the doorway.
As time goes on, the family discover that the house is crammed full of magical keys. Each key has its own unique magical power and ability, and may help them uncover the truth about their father's peculiar death - but at what cost?
From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) to Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), the cast is packed with some of horror's most established names.

But judging by the trailer, the house is just as important as any cast member. It's everything you want from the 'haunted' variety too, with towering spires, hidden corridors, mysterious cabinets and creaking doorways a-plenty.
A creepy well in the garden seems to be important. "Hello?" calls one of the Locke children, leaning over the stone ledge and shouting into the black hole, his voice bouncing back at him. "Are you my echo?"
From the darkness, another - softer - voice replies, "yes". Shudder.
As the trailer's camerawork plunges us into the shadowiest corners of the house, we see the Locke children as they slowly embark on the creepiest treasure hunt imaginable, attempting to match the keys with their lock counterparts.
A mysterious demon is disturbed by the children's antics - and soon begins to haunt their every move.
Described as 'a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family', Locke & Key stars Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) as Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott (IT and IT 2) as Bode Locke, and Connor Jessup (American Crime) as Tyler Locke and Emilia Jones (Horrible Histories) as Kinsey Locke.
Also appearing in the series are Bill Heck (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) as Rendell Locke, Laysla De Oliveira as Dodge, Sherri Saum as Ellie Whedon, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, Griffin Gluck (American Vandal) as Gabe and Coby Bird as Rufus Whedon.
This is going straight to the top of our 'to watch' lists.
