No Supernatural fans, we don't mean THOSE Winchesters. We mean Mrs. Sarah Winchester, the matron responsible for the most haunted mansion in the California Bay Area. In San Jose California you can visit the aforementioned Winchester Mystery House, built by the real Mrs. Winchester for her niece. Believe in the occult and otherworldy spirits or not, you can't ignore that something odd is at work in the residence.
CBS films along with Lionsgate has been hard at work on a film about Sarah and her spooky Gothic home, and the very first trailer for the project has been released.
Starring Dame Helen Mirren as the diminutive Mrs. W (she was reported to be under five foot tall) filming took place at the Winchester House throughout the spring of 2017. It seems like from the trailer, we will definately be getting more of a Halloween tale than the more historic how-to as it was previously reported to be.
"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 family."
Sounds pretty freaking great!
Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built is due out in theaters February 2nd 2018 and is directed by Peter Spierig.
