Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Inspired by true events. On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester, (Academy Award®-winner 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 brilliant 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…

Goofs

  • A large portion of the movie has to deal with the famous Winchester lever-action rifle being used during the American Civil War. This is factually wrong. The first Winchester lever-action model did not appear until after the war, in 1866. The similar-looking Henry rifle and the Spencer rifle were the main repeaters used during the war, and even then repeating rifles were themselves rare on the average Civil War battlefield. Most troops used then-traditional single-shot weapons, primarily "rifle-muskets."

I really enjoyed this movie. Yes, it's about Sarah Winchester, but the house itself is the star as it should be. Great atmospheric horror. Very much an old fashioned horror flick.

Mirren always brings a touch of class, of course, even to deluxe schlock like this. But Clarke is something of a blank leading man while the secondary characters are mostly pale phantoms sleepwalking through a thinly drawn plot.

You won't lose yourself in this haunted house, even though that was supposed to be the whole point. A film about a labyrinth filled with ghosts quickly becomes methodical and familiar, stranding a great cast in an inert supernatural thriller.
