Yesterday saw the reveal of the first poster for the upcoming ghost story Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built. Today, we’re taking things up a notch with the first teaser trailer! Full of period atmosphere, dizzying images, and ghostly terror, this looks like something right in the vein of The Conjuring, Insidious and even Abattoir. Considering the pedigree of actors in this movie, I’m 100% convinced and will be there opening night!
The film stars Helen Mirren as Sarah Winchester along with Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, Angus Sampson, and Finn Scicluna-O’Prey. Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig directed and co-wrote the script with Tom Vaughan. Tim McGahan and Brett Tomberlin produced for CBS Films.
Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built comes out February 2, 2018.
Inspired by true events. On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world.

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.
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…
