Winchester: The House that Ghosts Built unleashes stylish teaser poster

I always love movies, especially horror movies, that are supposedly "inspired by true events". You see it all the time, including the original marketing for films like PSYCHO and TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (both based on serial killer Ed Gein), or the recent CONJURING movies (which are more full of shit than the person at the end of a human centipede). But Hollywood loves that marketing gimmick, and apparently so do audiences, so there seems to be no end in sight for this particular trend.

Anyway, Helen Mirren is starring alongside Jason Clarke in the The Spierig Brothers-directed horror film - also ostensibly based on a true story - WINCHESTER: THE HOUSE THAT GHOSTS BUILT. Here's the official synopsis:

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...

And here's the stylish teaser poster, giving off some Burton-esque vibes:

So what do you Schmoes think? You down to visit WINCHESTER? Either way, sound off below!

Meanwhile WINCHESTER: THE HOUSE THAT GHOSTS BUILT will haunt theaters February 2nd, 2018.
