Winchester (15)

Biography, Fantasy, Horror

Eccentric firearm heiress believes she is haunted by the souls of people killed by the Winchester repeating rifle.

The critical consensus

There’s a great film to be made out of the Winchester story, but sadly this isn’t it.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Matt Glasby, Total Film, 02/02/2018

Despite an intriguing premise, Winchester misses the mark. Its anti-gun message is a shot in the right direction, but lazy fright tactics and a contradictory ending leave it firing blanks.

**(*)(*)(*)Ben Travis, Empire Online, 02/02/2018

A staggeringly pointless supernatural non-chiller featuring some very tiresome jump scares.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 31/01/2018

The Spierig brothers are at the helm of a disappointing, true-life inspired ghost story, with Helen Mirren.

**(*)(*)(*)Kevin Harley, The List, 02/02/2018

Helen Mirren plays an eccentric gun heiress in a film that is solely reliant on cheap scares.
