Winchester debuted with $9.3 million in ticket sales this Super Bowl weekend, falling behind Maze Runner Death Cure and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle at the box office.

This film was brought to life by the true reality of the Winchester mansion that is located in San Jose, California. The movie is filled with “true events” that occur throughout the ghostly mansion.  

The movie abruptly starts as psychiatrist Eric Price, played by Jason Clarke, is asked to stay with and examine Sarah Winchester, played by Helen Mirren, to analyze and find out if she is in the right state of mind to keep running the Winchester gun company. Sarah Winchester is known to draw her own designs, constantly adding to her mansion where 24/7 construction goes on. Sarah believes to see ghost spirits good and bad, and she talks to them. The spirits tell her what to build next in her mansion.

Once Dr. Price settled into “the house that spirits built,” he began talking privately with Sarah to discuss what she believes she is seeing and why. Dr. Price believed that she is in the right state of mind once he started to see the spirits and what they were capable of.

The plot made a turn when they both had to fight to stop the bad spirit power and put an end to the spirit. Even at the end of the movie, the suspense stays when they leave you on a sort of cliffhanger.

If you are thinking about going to see Winchester, first consider what’s in store – a historical haunting ghost movie that will keep you on your toes, rather than scare you. The Winchester mansion still stands to this day and is open for the public to visit.
