Dame Helen Mirren makes her first foray into the horror genre – as the heiress to the Winchester firearms company – in this supernatural tale “inspired by actual events”.

A grieving widow who claims to be haunted by the restless spirits of those killed by the repeating rifle, Sarah Winchester resides in a labyrinthine mansion built to accommodate the spectral multitude. Concerned that she may not be of sound mind, the company board enlist Dr Eric Price (Jason Clarke) to perform a psychological assessment; his arrival coincides with the appearance of a vengeful spirit. Ghost stories are always more effective when they’re period pieces, and while there are possessed children, levitating rifles and jump scares, Winchester effectively favours gloomy atmosphere and other gothic tropes, with Mirren adding a touch of class.
