“Terror is building.”
That’s the brilliant tagline on the official poster for Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built, now spooking theaters on February 2, 2018.
The film will star Academy Award winner Helen Mirren as firearm heiress Sarah Winchester. Based on a true story, Winchester spent decades using her fortune to expand upon her home, and no one is quite sure why. The most common belief? She was cursed by spirits who demanded she never stop building. Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, and Angus Sampson also star.
“On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester, (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 (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…”
Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers, Predestination, SAW: Legacy) directed.
We’re building up to the trailer launch tomorrow.
