| A good film, just a bit toothless.
I saw a trailer for this, and was instantly dying to watch it, sadly though, as is so ifyen the case, they flattered to deceive. It's not a bad film, I would go so far as to say it's a decent watch, maybe my expectations were just too high. It just fails to deliver on the excellent premise, there is subtlety, and then there's dull, and for me, Winchester languishes somewhere between the two. The scares are non existent, there are one or two good ones, but I expected so many more, they could have gone to town with these parameters. The best single element, as many would expect is the presence of Helen Mirren, who is terrific, but in all truth, slightly under used.

It looks fantastic, it's well acted, if you're looking for a horror with bite, you'll be disappointed, if you're after an intriguing, spooky tale, then you may well enjoy it. 6/10

Trivia

Tourists have not been allowed to take photographs as far back as 1989. In 2009, well before Lionsgate bought the film rights, The Asylum film company released a low budget horror film called Haunting of Winchester House and did so without the permission of the Winchester estate as the house is privately owned and operated as a tourist attraction. It was explained that someone connected with the filmmakers surreptitiously took photographs of the interiors of the house on several of the tours in effort to get schematics of enough of the floor plan and of the interiors . The estate has never allowed filming inside the house or grounds for that reason.

Due to the age of the house and the condition of the Victorian interiors, flash photography has never been allowed on the tours.

Marion Marriott: I'm a mother. A fighter. A protector. And I am not afraid.


Goofs

When the front of the mansion is shown, CGI is used to depict the 7-story tower that existed on the mansion in 1906, and the colors of the mansion are changed from their current (2018) colors, yet the final (1922) configuration of the mansion's main facade is shown. In 1906, the facade was quite different, as construction between 1906 and 1922 changed the mansion drastically. When overhead shots of the mansion rooftops are shown, the current (2018) colors are visible, and there is no sign of the 7-story tower (it was torn down after the 1906 earthquake) even though the spot where it should protrude is shown several times.
