It sounds like the tumblers might be "frozen" or stuck. Try spraying WD-40 into the lock before inserting the key. Use the plastic straw that comes with the can, insert one end into the nozzle hole and the other end inside the lock. Don't be stingy. Let set a minute or two and then retry the key.

If the key doesn't turn at all, make sure you have the right trunk key, i.e. one that worked before. Many times the ignition and trunk key are different. If it is the right key then the cylinder may be frozen. The remote opens the latch a different way. Try spraying some liguid wrench into the key hole and keep trying to turn it. if the works spray silicone spray or lock lubricant to oil the lock afterwards. If the cylinder does turn and doesn't release the door, look inside to see if the inside lock mechanism is broken.

With the lock in the vertical position, insert the key, then turn it to the right, when you can not turn it further you push inward and it should pop open. If this does not work then you have a problem with the lock itself.
