Hellen Mirren in WINCHESTER

The horror industry keeps on giving. This new trailer comes to you from CBS Films and Lionsgate. Winchester, which stars Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, and Angus Sampson is set to debut in theaters on February 2, 2018. Watch the clip below.

Winchester is 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, (played by 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. (via ComingSoon)


"Eerie is not the right word. It’s inspiring and moving and fascinating. I haven’t actually shot any of my scenes here. I finished in Australia, a few weeks ago, but it’s been fantastic for me to be in this house. It was immaculately reproduced in Australia. In Melbourne, in this very era, there was a wave of enormous wealth that came in and architecturally there was a lot of building in Melbourne, in the European style of building, at that time. There is a connection there. We shot in a couple of big houses, of this era, in Melbourne, but to be in the real house has been a really amazing experience for me, actually," says Mirren in a Collider interview.

The movie also stars Sarah Snook (Holding the Man, Steve Jobs), Laura Brent (The Chronicles of Narnia, A Few Best Men) and Jeff Lipary (Sacred Blood, Lumpia 2).

Winchester is written and directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination, Daybreakers), and produced by Tim McGahan and Brett Tomberlin. It opens February 2nd.
