Description

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…

    After a promising start in the sphere of Indie cinema with semi-alternate spins on Genre, with Daybreakers and Predestination. Michael and Peter Spierig have hit the uncompromising Hollywood wall, as have the likes of Marc Webb and Richard Kelly to name a few, before them. Winchester is a hollow, cliched, and quite frankly dull, entry into The Conjuring-esque-verse of cinema that lacks the originality, or intrigue of the James Wan horror classic. Winchester isn’t a total disaster in-regards to mis-en-scene and iconography. It’s edited with a slow prowess and intensity by editor Matt Villa and production designer Matthew Putland, who both add a wonderfully stoic/gothic atmosphere, that feels chilling, but is unfortunately undone by the sheer amount of tropes and cliches, most of all the incredibly lacklustre and desperate attempts of jumpscares. The Spierig siblings also struggle to utilise a stellar cast in the likes of both Jason Clarke and Helen Mirren, who give lukewarm performances due to disappointing material.
