Winchester Starring Academy Award Winner Helen Mirren Hits Blu-ray This May
A few weekends back a friend of my grandmother’s approached me at a get-together and asked, “You’re the one who’s into horror movies, right?”
I said, “Yes, ma’am, I am.”
She says, “I saw that Winchester movie last night and loved it. You should see it as soon as possible.”
I thanked the kindly old woman and she went about her business. It was awesome.
It is with this in mind I’m chomping at the bit to see this horror movie that even my grandmother’s friends enjoyed. And I don’t have to wait much longer as today we have word that Winchester will be hitting Digital April 17 and Blu-ray/DVD May 1.

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…
