Creepy First Trailer For Helen Mirren's Horror Film WINCHESTER: THE HOUSE THAT GHOSTS BUILT
I've had a fascination with the Winchester Mystery House since I first learned about it when I was a kid. The thought of ghosts instructing a woman to keep building on to her house to appease the spirits of those people who were killed by the Winchester rifle is a mysterious one.
I've been to visit the Winchester Mystery House a few times up in San Jose, California and it's pretty freakin' cool! I was really excited to hear that a movie was being made inspired by these stories that I grew up with and today we have the first trailer for you to watch! It looks like it's going to be a great horror flick!
The film is called Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built and it has a fantastic cast that includes Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook and Angus Sampson. Here's the 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…
The film was written and directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination, Daybreakers), and it's set to be released on February 2, 2018.
Just for the hell of it, here's a little video that talks about the house that the film is based on.
