This amazing house deserved better than this movie. And they dragged Helen Mirren into it too.

Inspired by true events. On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester, (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren) heiress to the Winchester fortune, it is a house that knows no end. 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.

The first company Oliver Winchester (Sarah's father-in-law) owned was a men's shirt company (Winchester & Company) with his twin brother Samuel. In the 1860s, Winchester invested in Volcanic Repeating Arms Company that produced a revolver designed by Horace Smith & Daniel Wesson (yes, Smith & Wesson). When the company went bankrupt, he bought the company out and cleared the debt of $57,000.

Trivia
Lionsgate bought the film and photography rights to the Winchester Mansion for this film. So now tourists are not allowed to take any pictures of the interior of the mansion, because a tourist photo would be in direct competition with a Hollywood movie.
