Inspired by the unnerving true events surrounding the Winchester House, Lionsgate UK is thrilled to announce that Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built starring Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren will be available to own on Blu-ray & DVD from Monday 28th May.
On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester (Helen Mirren), the eccentric firearm heiress to the Winchester Repeating Arms fortune, it is a house that knows no end.
Renowned for its enormous size, its architectural curiosities, and its lack of any master building plan, the Winchester house was constructed in an incessant twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week mania for decades. It stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms with numerous oddities. To the outsider it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece (Sarah Snook) or for the brilliant Doctor Eric Price (Jason Clarke) whom she has summoned to the house. She is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters.
The cast is led by Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren (Eye In The Sky, The Queen), Jason Clarke (Mudbound, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes), Sarah Snook (Steve Jobs, Jessabelle), Angus Sampson (Insidious, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Finn Scicluna-O’Prey (True Story with Hamish & Andy, The Secret River).
Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built is directed by The Spierig Brothers (Predestination, Daybreakers), written by Tom Vaughan and The Spierig Brothers, and is based on the events surrounding Sarah Winchester and the famed Winchester House. Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built is produced by Tim McGahan (Predestination) and Brett Tomberlin.
