Storyline

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.

Trivia

In the scene of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, someone dies, but in real life the only casualties were couple of cupolas (dome roofing) and a tower. See more »

Goofs

A large portion of the movie has to deal with the Winchester rifle being used during the American Civil War. This is factually wrong. The Winchester rifle did not come into use until after the war, in 1866. The Henry rifle and the Spencer rifle were the main repeaters used during the war. See more »

What is real ?
2 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

This movie wants you to confuse the reality with imagination, and it does a reasonably good job at it. At the end, I did wonder how some of the presented illusions could be translated into real life. Actors did a great job with what they were given, although the writing could be more extensive to make the viewers more invested in the characters.

At times, some ghosts reminded me of caricatures, but this flaw is compensated by the wonderful set design and camera work. As far as horror movies go, Winchester is a movie with a terrific atmosphere and good execution.
