10. Locke & Key
Adapted from the comic book series by written by Joe Hill (aka the fruit of Stephen Kings horror obsessed loins), Locke & Key tells the tale of the Locke siblings return to their ancestral home of Keyhouse following their father's murder. Supernatural shenanigans promptly abound and the family finds itself embroiled in a battle against an ancient, unspeakable evil looking to get its shadowy mitts on some magical keys. So how come despite assembling an impressive cast (including Nick Stahl and Miranda Otto), a pilot episode green-lit by Fox and directed by Mark Romanek (him what made Robin Williams awful creepy in "One Hour Photo") and an extremely well received showing at San Diego Comic-Con International, did the series never amount to anything other than an initial pilot? A depressingly simple case of financial problems is the unfortunate (and all too common) ailment that struck Locke & Key down early. In May of 2011, Fox cited high production costs as the reasons for halting the production line. Despite shopping it round to other networks, they eventually ceased pushing it altogether. Since then there was talk in November 2012 of the series getting remodelled into a film trilogy, but no information has escaped out regarding the projects state since then....I guess the details are being kept under...Locke & Key
(HAHAHA... oh shut up).
