Winchester Gets New Title and Release Date
We previously announced that the Helen Mirren-starring Winchester would be released on 23rd February 2018, but the date has now been moved up to 2nd February 2018. That’s not all; the title has been changed to Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built. We think they should scrap “Winchester” entirely and leave it as The House That Ghosts Built, but would this be too similar to The Houses October Built?
Whatever it’s called and whenever it’s released, we’re excited. With an Oscar-winning actress in the lead and a chilling true story at the centre, what’s not to love?
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…
Winchester additionally stars Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook and Angus Sampson. Look out for the film from 2nd February 2018.
