    Winchester - Bluray review
    [​IMG]


    Sarah Lockwood Winchester (Helen Mirren), widow and heiress to the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, has retreated from Connecticut to a home she is building in California. No mere bungalow, the house is a sprawling mansion with hundreds of rooms, a maze of connections, and doors that open upon dangerous drops. She insists that she can see and talk to spirits, and may be building rooms to appease the anger of Winchester rifle shooting victims. This has raised the concern of the company. Psychologist Dr. Eric Price (Jason Clarke) is brought in to evaluate whether Sarah is capable of managing rational decisions needed to lead the company's operations. Price has had his own encounters with death in the past, and his judgement is questionably impaired by the memories of those events as well.

    I'm surprise to read a positive review of it.;) This might be a future iTunes purchase for the right price for me.

    14% tomato meter but 37% audience approval. How many of them saw it in a shitty box theater with lousy audio systems??? =)
