Winchester (2018)


Ensconced in her sprawling California mansion, eccentric firearm heiress Sarah Winchester believes she is haunted by the souls of people killed by the Winchester repeating rifle. (IMDb)
Had potential–loved that red font of the opening title, the set-up was intriguing, and the setting perfectly spooky and surreal–but the execution really underwhelms: the interest surrounding the titular character dissolves almost right after we meet her, and what follows is merely a half-baked ghost story with mediocre jump scares and a commentary on grief and gun violence that’s never fully realized (not helped by average turns and poor dialogue–there’s a lot of people talking to themselves).
5.5/10 (Poor)
