I mean no disrespect to Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, or the famous Winchester family, but the movie about your messed up family and haunted mansion was a farce. Why would two people with respected acting resumes agree to be part of such a dumb, uninteresting, and lackluster “scary” movie? Ana was told that this movie would scare her and sent me to watch it alone. Obviously that intel was wrong because with the exception of the odd silly jump scare, this movie lacked anything of significance to make people terrified. This enormous mansion is listed as one of the most haunted place in America, but I will never know that because I don’t have any interest in checking it out. Winchester got an early release because this is the time of the year when garbage movies come out and contenders for awards have already come and gone or they got better release dates. I’m complained a lot recently that horror movies just don’t have the same effect as they used, which is a concern for me when the next installment of Halloween comes out. 1/10
