I was expecting more from this, considering it stars Helen Mirren, but it ended up being pretty disappointing. I liked the setting — big ol’ haunted house at the turn of the 20th century — and the historical aspect (Mrs. Winchester, of the gun company), but it ended up being not much more than a series of jump scares, and that’s not the kind of horror I like — I’m more into the creepy, thriller kind. Can’t say I’d really recommend this to anyone.
