Netflix drops trailer for new show 'Locke and Key' from Haunting of Hill House creators

Netflix has just dropped the trailer for its new show Locke & Key.

From The Haunting of Hill House creators, the show, as its title suggests, is all about a family unlocking secrets after their father's mysterious death, and they do so with a literal set of "magical keys".

The show is the televised adaption of the best-selling comic book series by Joe Hill - who is none other than horror master Stephen King's son - and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW comics.

To see the full trailer for Locke & Key, check out the video below: 

The show's synopsis reads: "After their father is murdered under mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which they discover is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father's death.

"As the Locke children explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon awakens - and will stop at nothing to steal them.

"From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), the series is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family."

Locke and Key stars more than a few well-known faces too, featuring Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott (IT and IT 2) as Bode Locke, Connor Jessup (American Crime) as Tyler Locke, Emilia Jones (Horrible Histories) as Kinsey Locke, Bill Heck (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) as Rendell Locke, Laysla De Oliveira as Dodge, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, Griffin Gluck (American Vandal) as Gabe and Coby Bird as Rufus Whedon.

And if reactions on YouTube are anything to go by, the show is going to be a hit with newcomers and fans of the original comic series.

The show was originally supposed to be created by Hulu, who had ordered a pilot, but ultimately passed on Locke & Key - a decision which is likely to work in Netflix's favor.

Locke & Key will be dropping on Netflix on February 7.
