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

The real life Winchester house has spider webs incorporated into its design, as Sarah believed that spider webs were good luck. See more »

Goofs

When the mansion's exterior is first shown in daylight, the sun is depicted as coming from the right side of the frame when the camera is facing the mansion's front facade. This is impossible, as the mansion's front facade faces due east, and the right side of the frame would be north. In San Jose, California, which is in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere, the sun cannot shine on the north side of the mansion. See more »

Finally a great horor with scare, story and a good simple end! Must Watch.
24 February 2018 | by L_CopaSee all my reviews

I do not understand why this movie is so underrated. It has a good amount of jumpscares, it creates a horror atmosphere that makes you wonder how would you feel if you were there and it does not reveal the exact end. The movie has a great acting from Jason Clarke and Helen Mirel. It has a great portrait from superstitious people from the previous 10 decades. The directing was really great and the movie has a simple lovely story with a beginning and an end. What more do you want people nowadays? You re never pleased with horror movies so if you don't like this one you deserve to spend your time with other low movies. If you want to take my advice, watch this movie! Enjoy!
