CBS Films announced today that the upcoming supernatural thriller, WINCHESTER, will be released on Friday, February 23rd 2018!
The news comes after CBS Films gave us our first look at Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren in the role of real life heiress and owner of the Winchester House: Sarah Winchester. The story is inspired by true events, about an impossibly wealthy recluse who obsessively kept her 160+ room home under construction twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, for thirty-eight years straight.
WINCHESTER is directed by Michael & Peter Spierig and stars Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, and Angus Sampson. Inspired by true events, WINCHESTER follows the story of firearm heiress Sarah Winchester (Helen Mirren), who was convinced that she was haunted by the souls killed at the hands of the Winchester Repeating Rifle. After the sudden deaths of her husband and child, she threw herself into the 24-hours a day, seven days a week construction of an enormous mansion designed to keep the evil spirits at bay. But when skeptical San Francisco psychiatrist Eric Price (Jason Clarke) is dispatched to the estate to evaluate her state of mind, he discovers that her obsession may not be so insane after all. The film will take audiences inside the labyrinth-like house that is believed to be one of the most haunted places in the world.
