Winchester

She is Not Alone.


Winchester
On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. It was built by Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester fortune, and was constructed in a non-stop twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week frenzy for decades. It stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms. To an outsider it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah was not building for herself, for her niece or for the brilliant Doctor Eric Price whom she has summoned to the house. She was building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them had a score to settle with the Winchesters.

Alex Isaacs quote iconI would say go watch this movie if you can handle scary moments in dark rooms with strangers.

Jim Judy quote iconPerhaps with a different storytelling approach, this might have worked better. As it stands, this Winchester ends up as something of a misfire.

Tomatometer quote iconLike a grand staircase within the famous mansion that inspired it, Winchester appears poised to get a rise out of audiences, but ultimately leads nowhere.
