Jason Clarke is a psychiatrist sent by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company to assess Helen Mirren’s sanity so the board can regain control of her company if he declares her unfit. Unfortunately for him, Helen and the ghosts that haunt her house have other plans.
The movie’s inspired by a true story. In the late 1800s, Sarah Winchester began turning her house into a maze-like mansion to trap and confuse the angry spirits with its winding corridors, numerous rooms, and staircases and doors that lead to nowhere. These days it’s called the Winchester Mystery House. It’s located about 50 miles outside of San Francisco, and to this day it’s considered one of the most haunted house in the world.
