    Plot Summary: 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…

    my mom and sister went to see this and said it was awesome. Neither are horror fans and somehow they were actually expecting more of a documentary type film, lol.

    we grew up outside the bay area so the "Winchester Mystery House" as they call it...has always been a fascination... but I have never been there.

    apparently this movie gets a bit more in depth in regards to why she did what she did with the house...apparently it was tied directly to familial guilt in regards to the family fortune.

    anyway... its worth a watch from what I hear.

    I almost saw it this past Monday, but it's getting 11% from Rotten Tomatoes, so I saw the Post instead.
