Built by Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester fortune, it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms. To an outsider, it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman's madness. But Sarah's actually building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts -- and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters.

      Critics Consensus

      Like a grand staircase within the famous mansion that inspired it, Winchester appears poised to get a rise out of audiences, but ultimately leads nowhere.

      michael b Overall Good Movie.😀😀😀😀 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/09/23 Full Review Monsol E I have no idea if this is even remotely similar to the actual house's history, [as I've never looked into it] but it made for a really fun movie! A troubled shrink has to stay at the supposedly-haunted house, as he evaluates Mrs. Winchester's mental state for her company...only to find the hauntings are quite real..and quite personal. I greatly appreciated the movies coherent systems...why the house is like that, why the spirits are here, and how to deal with them are all well explained. And doctor-guy's direct connection to the house made for an interesting twist, and a nice character arc...leading to a satisfying resolution. The movie's horror leans a bit too much on it's jumpscares, but maybe that was inevitable when the horror has an good explanation. Even though this film about one of Americas scariest places... isn't particularly scary... it was very well thought-out and executed. It looked great, was acted well, had good effects...Everything's darn good overall! At some point, I'll look into the actual house, and then re-watch this to see if it holds up, but as it is now, I really liked it! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/27/23 Full Review wilson s The 2010 version of the "The Haunted Mansion" it felt so similar but most of the story elements and effects were done slightly better. I may not be a Winchester puritan. But I've been to the mansion a good many times (mostly for their Halloween haunts which never disappoint). It's difficult to tell at times what this movie is supposed to pull off, anytime the story gets scary/disturbing it doesn't feel that connected to the story, their just trying to remind you it's haunted and nothing else. But it was far from offensive. Jason Clarke and Helen Miller both did an amazing job, and the overall production wasn't terrible, it just wasn't strictly speaking new. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/11/23 Full Review Wendy W oh baby nooo, why yall make this Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/09/23 Full Review Eddie M I watched this movie 2 days after I watched Pet Sematary [2019] but I didn't know Jason Clarke was in it. I found the movie interesting and it kept me wondering what was going to happen because I found this movie confusing at first. The movie is another haunted house movie but I really like the new ones for some reason. I found this one also different to watch and really suspenseful. Very good movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Very enjoyable movie. I don’t usually like horror movies but I do like ones based on “real” events.

      Roxana Hadadi Mediaversity Reviews The stereotyping of Black and Indigenous men are made worse by the fact they never speak, nor do they have any backstories. Rated: D Nov 18, 2021 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader Directors Michael and Peter Spierig, reworking a script by Tom Vaughan, bring little passion or eloquence to the dialogue, frustrating such capable actors as Helen Mirren (playing Winchester) and Jason Clarke. Mar 9, 2020 Full Review Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review It's not good. And it's not good in a way that's made worse by the fact that there's so much potential in this story. Aug 28, 2018 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies A bizarrely unremarkable slog that takes an interesting idea and does absolutely nothing with it. Rated: 1.5/5 Aug 21, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The movie resolves to check every box of a modern supernatural horror flick, and through that, the surprisingly talented cast doesn't have much to do. Rated: 1.5/4 Mar 14, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy There's a topical and truthful message at the center of this film -- it's just a shame it gets wasted in a movie as mediocre as this one.
