Helen Mirren’s latest film “Winchester: The House that Ghosts Built” has been released on Blu-Ray, DVD and on demand in the United States on May 01. I don’t say that about a film too often, and I always try to find the positive in a project – but “Winchester” is just a stupid-ass movie. I wasn’t expecting a history lesson on the Winchester House, but at least something with a bit of a story to it. The film consists of a couple of jump scares that haven’t been effective since the 1990s and long boring tea-hour scenes with Helen and Jason Clarke talking about the supernatural. For a mystery film, there’s nothing mysterious here, and for horror fans, there’s nothing remotely spooky. Maybe it’s just not my genre. At least, let’s hope they had fun filming it. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery. “Winchester” is available everywhere on demand.
