The introduction of Netflix and its streaming model may have been a curse to the cinemas, but when it comes to the small screen, the variety of shows and movies is upping the game of everyone else and also providing the viewing audiences with different choices.

Locke & Key deals with a mysterious house, which holds some magical keys, and when the patriarch of the family dies, the children find the keys, and the mystery of the house is there for the taking.
