Winchester (also known as Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built) is heading to Home Entertainment platforms.

Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built will be available to own on Blu-ray & DVD from Monday 28th May.

Extras on the Home Entertainment release include a featurette titled ‘Driven By The Spirits: The Making of Winchester’.

Inspired by true events, the jumpy scarefest stars Helen Mirren and charts a truly fascinating horror story.

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 – Fast and Furious 8), heiress to the Winchester Repeating Arms 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…

Apart from Helen Mirren, the film co-stars Sarah Snook, Jason Clarke and Agus Sampson and is co-directed by Michael Spierig & Peter Spierig. Michael Spierig, Peter Spierig and Tom Vaughan are on writing credits.

Other supporting cast members include Laura Brent, Tyler Coppin, Dawayne Jordan, Jeffrey W. Jenkins, Thor Carlsson, Xavier Gouault, John Lobato, Emm Wiseman, Xavier Gouault and Finn Scicluna-O’Prey.

The Spierig Brothers are no strangers to the genre, having co-directed Predestination, Daybreakers, Undead and most recently Jigsaw, the latest instalment in the SAW franchise.

The Winchester mysery has been legend for many a year, and this new horror looks to shed some light onto the creepy hauntings of the area.
