Helen Mirren stars as widow Sarah Winchester in this supernatural film directed by Michael and Peter Spierig, depicting the tale of Winchester House, a real life haunted house in San Jose, California.
Sarah Winchester is convinced that she’s being haunted.
After her husband, newborn child and father-in-law are suddenly killed, Winchester decides to seek advice from a medium about her situation.
One particular theory is that the souls that are haunting her are of those that were killed by the Winchester rifle, returning to curse the family that created it.
Sarah moves west and consumes herself in the construction of the Winchester Mansion to keep the spirits away.
The medium warns her that if she ever stops working on the house, that she will meet her demise, just like the rest of her family.
The film follows sceptical psychiatrist Eric Price (Jason Clarke) as he visits Winchester House to assess the mental state of Sarah, only to discover that things might not be as bizarre as she has been describing them.
Helen Mirren’s co-stars include Jason Clarke, Angus Sampson and Sarah Snook in this upcoming horror film that’s set to leave viewers on the edge of their seats.
Winchester is due to hit cinemas on 22 February 2018 in Australia.
