Several months after The Spierig brothers help Billy the Puppet take back Halloween with the October 27th release of Jigsaw, they'll take viewers into the labyrinthine confines of the Winchester Mystery House in a supernatural thriller based on the real-life location, and you can now get an idea of what to expect by watching the first teaser trailer for Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built.
Synopsis: "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..."
Directed by The Spierig Brothers, Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built stars Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, Angus Sampson, and Finn Scicluna-O'Prey. Lionsgate and CBS Films will release the supernatural thriller in theaters on February 2nd, 2018.
