A problem I have with a lot of horror movies is inconsistency of their idea, or explanations that don't really make sense with the rest of the story. Winchester, however, did a great job at remaining consistent with their story.

It relied on a number of jump scares, which were well done. The story was interesting and bizarre and was at least partially based on real people. Not terri... read more

Since this movie had a rather lame reputation, I wasn’t expecting much but since it was available on Videoland, I thought I might as well check it out anyway. Well, first of all, to be honest, I have to admit that I had never heard of Sarah Winchester and her haunted house before watching this movie. Anyway, in my opinion, this tale definitely had some potential and I’m rather surprised that i... read more

My Top 10 Least Favourite Movies of 2018 (10 movies items)

"This horror film is about as far removed from scary as you can get. It tries way too hard in its opening scenes, just throwing creepy imagery in your face for no apparent reason. It's based on true events, and was even partially filmed on the property of the real Winchester Mystery House, but the plot itself gets increasingly crazier and stupider as it progresses. The climax is so preposterous, so senseless, that the ending contradicts the ghosts' previously (and rather hastily) established moti"

“Since this movie had a rather lame reputation, I wasn’t expecting much but since it was available on Videoland, I thought I might as well check it out anyway. Well, first of all, to be honest, I have to admit that I had never heard of Sarah Winchester and her haunted house before watching this movie. Anyway, in my opinion, this tale definitely had some potential and I’m rather surprised that it was, back then, considered as one of the worst movies released in 2018. I mean, sure, the damned thing still didn’t really work but it was still far from being a total disaster. My point is that Sarah Winchester was a really interesting character and her house seemed to be fascinating so, only therefore, this movie got a few extra points from me. I also liked the fact that the man supposed to ” read more

" You know, you could take the real life story that is film is very loosely based upon and do something really terrific with it. You could even keep the same cast, as they're more than good enough for this. It is however such a shame that they decided to take this potential and turn it into a very lazy and mundane haunted house film instead."

"Una película muy promedio de esta época y tal vez ese sea su mayor problema no quiere ir mas allá de lo promedio. Eso se ve en como algunos elementos son repetidos de otras muchas películas, algunas veces sale de ese molde para encaminarse a algo mas Lovecraftiano pero abandona ese sentimiento para volverse una película promedio mas.

"This movie based on the story of the most haunted mansion in America isn't bad but it doesn't seem to quite deliver on it's setup. With a few tweaks this could've been a very successful slow burn, gothic ghost story. The cinematography is very atmospheric. The acting is good and there's a few scary moments. A marked over-reliance on jump scares got a little tedious. I really don't think they took as much advantage of the location as they could've. The portrayal of Sarah Winchester by Helen Mirre"

" DVD- 1hr. 39min. First Viewing The script introduces a strong setup that it never comes close to following up, and forces some bland horror cliches to the story's center, but Winchester is not a total loss. It's well-made, with strong technical craft, and quite well-performed. There are, too, a couple of solid scares; though not enough, nor are the ones present strong or original enough to shock discerning viewers. If the filmmakers were smarter with their scares and, of course, had a much bett"
