If you've had the pleasure of visiting The Winchester House, about an hour outside of San Francisco in the middle of nowhere, you know that it's one of the most bizarre places on earth. It feels almost otherworldly, which seems to be the basis for this new horror flick, Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built, starring the 72 year old and always bangable Dame Helen Mirren.
Mirren is playing Sarah Winchester, the heiress who spent the entirety of her family's gun-making fortune constructing this mystery house. The film is running with the conceit that Winchester built the house to contain the souls of everyone murdered at the hands of her family's legacy, which is interesting I suppose. I could honestly have gone for just a straight docu-drama or even just a documentary on the subject, but there are worse ways to spend two hours that with the always amazing and eminently bangable Helen Mirren.
Every awards show I see her at, I think the same thing that every man in America thinks... I'd hit that. She's not a GILF because, let's face it, we all want to. Not just me. Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built hits theaters on February 2. I won't include the year to depress you over how close we are to the end of 2017.
