On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester, (Helen Mirren) heiress to the Winchester fortune, it is a house that knows no end. Constructed in an incessant twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week mania for decades, it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms. To the outsider it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece (Sarah Snook) or for the troubled Doctor Eric Price (Jason Clarke) whom she has summoned to the house. She is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters…
During my childhood, I spent many summers in San Francisco. There isn’t a tourist attraction that I haven’t checked out in the Bay Area. The Winchester Mystery House located in San Jose is one that my cousins and I checked out a couple of times. Naturally, this upcoming supernatural horror film inspired by true events and based on the famed mansion intrigues me. Can’t wait to check this one out.
Winchester, previously titled Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built, spooks moviegoers on February 2, 2018. So glad they simplified the title. Check out the official trailer below.
