These are likely to change in the Netflix adaptation.
The long-awaited live-action adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s phenomenal horror comics series Locke and Key is almost here–its release date on Netflix is February 7. Before it arrives, though, what better way to prepare than by exploring the magical, otherworldly keys that make the series great?
Locke and Key follows the Locke family as they move cross-country to take up residence in their ancestral home, Keyhouse, following a terrible family tragedy. At Keyhouse, they uncover reality-bending keys that grant them incredible powers. They’re not the only ones who want that power, though, and the series goes to some extremely dark and horrifying places as the Lockes fight against powerful evil forces.
Yep, Locke and Key is extremely dope–at least, the comics are. And they’re well worth a re-read. The show, starring Connor Jessup as Tyler Locke, Emilia Jones as his sister Kinsey, Jackson Robert Scott as their younger brother Bode, and Darby Stanchfield as their mother Nina, hits Netflix February 7. But if, like us, you just can’t wait to visit the world of Locke and Key, come on a journey with us exploring every key from the comics.
