At this point in her career, Helen Mirren gets to dress like Marilyn Manson's dresser doily and yell at the ghost of a confederate soldier any time she pleases. The biggest problem with Winchester is it's nowhere near trashy enough to be captivating.

There's so much potential in this story that it's a shame the final product turned out to be such a ludicrous mishmash of tired genre tropes.

It's really boring and not scary in the slightest.

A horror movie should never make itself feel harmless. Winchester does a very good job at being insipid. [Full review in Spanish].

February 8, 2019
It's a movie that seems content to wade in the shallow end of jump scares and other cliched tropes rather than actually explore a story that could have been engaged with some depth.

October 25, 2018
Despite the presence of Helen Mirren, this is a dull, plodding horror film that could have easily taken place in any house and it really wouldn't have made any difference.

Winchester is entirely forgettable and I'd be lying if I didn't admit to getting heavy-lidded during the movie.

The same standard jump-scare haunted house movie that you've seen so many times before,

Aw how cute. Lionsgate really wanted their own little "Conjuring" franchise.

This movie is a lot of a mess, and I don't know if I recommend that you see this. I couldn't believe it.

Winchester misses the opportunity to contribute to an important social conversation about gun violence and, furthermore, to tell a story that scares the hell out of filmgoers like its haunted house predecessors did.

But as a horror movie, a haunting movie, a ghost movie, this movie just fails because it's so boring. For so long nothing happens, then when things do happen, it's all a jump scare.

While both actors' performances are convincing, their characters are bland.

What should have been a fun, entertaining jaunt winds up being a maddening, frightful bore.

[Directors Michael and Peter Spierig] exploit the anti-armament allegory in order to ignore the narrative and end up lost in the corridors of a mansion to which they never found the exit. [Full review in Spanish]

The film is a surprisingly flaccid affair with scares simply not landing or sometimes coming across as unintentionally comedic.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Its cheap jump scares follow one another at a cruising speed, based on sound effects or worn-out tricks, and the film does not have a particularly original atmosphere. [Full Review in Spanish]
