Directed by the Spierig brothers, Winchester looks like a fancy horror story that is true. The movie follows Sarah Winchester, played by Oscar winner Helen Mirren, who lives on an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco where the most haunted house in the world is built. Sarah Winchester is the heiress to the Winchester fortune from the famous Winchester rifles, and she continues to build her house 24/7. A true mania that lasts for decades.
But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece, played by Sarah Snook or for the troubled Doctor Eric Price, played by 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.
The Winchester house is a well-known tourist attraction. Even though I live in Northern California, I have never visited this house but friends have told me about it, and I have seen the billboards around Interstate 80 promoting the Winchester House as a mysterious home, nothing about it being haunted.
The trailer shows a horror movie at its best. This will be a fun movie to watch, especially with Mirren in the starring role.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh and based on the novel by Agatha Christie, Murder on Orient Express arrives once again to the silver screen.
As we climb aboard the prestigious train that starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told.
The movie tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. Led by an astounding director with a stellar cast including Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad.
Daphne du Maurier is one of my favorite authors because I devoured her novel Rebbeca. She is a great storyteller.
Here we have My Cousin Rachel, based on the novel by the British author, published in 1951. Like the earlier Rebecca, it is a mystery-romance, set primarily on a large estate in Cornwall.
I can’t recall reading My Cousin Rachel, though I have read a lot of du Maurier’s books. With such a moving and calculating trailer, I am compelled to download the book on my Kindle and read the novel to see if I can remember if I ever read it.
Directed by Roger Mitchell and starring Rachel Weisz, the movie follows a young Englishman as he plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.
This featurette offers an insight into the story.
Directed by Ritesh Batra, The Sense of Ending follow a man, played by Jim Broadbent, who becomes haunted by his past and is presented with a mysterious legacy that causes him to re-think his current situation in life. The movie also stars Charlotte Rampling, Mathew Goode, Michelle Dockery, and Emily Mortimer. The movie based on the Booker Award-winning novel of the same name by Julian Barnes.
Get A Drink, I love watching Broadbent because he is so good and says so much with his simple look and stance.
