Hola Dannie Aqui!
 
Madame Revenant swooped up the trailer for the Spierig Brothers’ latest! Let’s see if she loved it like me!
 
The Winchester house. A towering mansion veiled in mystery much like its eccentric owner, Sarah Winchester, the wealthy heiress to the Winchester fortune. What would bring a lonely widow to continually build onto the house which didn’t end until her death? What truly was her sense of urgency, her raison d’etre?

Much like Clive Barker’s Books of blood, there are many spirits who want to deal their due share of justice.
 
WINCHESTER:THE HOUSE THAT GHOSTS BUILT is a film out to share this very story. The film is written and directed by Spierig brothers who brought you Undead (2003) and Daybreakers (2009). Helen Mirren plays Sarah Winchester, a tortured soul driven to madness, tasked with appeasing vengeful ghosts with a flare for home renovation.
