First look at Helen Mirren in true horror story Winchester

Last Updated on July 31, 2021

So there’s a new “based on true events” horror movie coming out soon, this one about the supposedly haunted Winchester manor. It’s called – fittingly – WINCHESTER and stars Helen Mirren as Sarah Winchester, the proprietor of said mansion (and the widow of the inventor of the Winchester rifle). Here’s the official synopsis:

Inspired by true events, WINCHESTER follows the story of firearm heiress Sarah Winchester (Helen Mirren), who was convinced that she was haunted by the souls killed at the hands of the Winchester Repeating Rifle. After the sudden deaths of her husband and child, she threw herself into the 24-hours a day, seven days a week construction of an enormous mansion designed to keep the evil spirits at bay. But when skeptical San Francisco psychiatrist Eric Price (Jason Clarke) is dispatched to the estate to evaluate her state of mind, he discovers that her obsession may not be so insane after all. The film will take audiences inside the labyrinth-like house that is believed to be one of the most haunted places in the world.

And here’s our first look at Mirren dressed as Winchester:

So what do you Schmoes think? You down for this? If so, sound off below!

Either way, WINCHESTER will be haunting theaters Spring 2018.
