Firearm heiress Sarah Winchester is convinced that she is haunted by the souls killed at the hands of the Winchester repeating rifle. After the sudden deaths of her husband and child, she throws herself into the construction of an enormous mansion designed to keep the evil spirits at bay. But when skeptical San Francisco psychiatrist Eric Price is dispatched to the estate to evaluate her state of mind, he discovers that her obsession may not be so insane after all.

Helen Mirren embraces being an adult — which is no easy feat in an industry that marginalizes women over 40. She’s called out Hollywood’s ageism as “fucking outrageous” and spoken about how she’s much more confident and willing to tell people to “fuck off” now than when she was younger. So it makes perfect sense that Mirren will receive her next accolade at the 17th annual Movies for Grownups Awards.
According to the Associated Press, the Oscar winner will take home the Movies for Grownups’ Career Achievement Award on February 5. Established by the Aarp in 2002, the Movies for Grownups Awards honor films and performers with “a grown-up state of mind.”
Mirren stated that she is “greatly honored” to receive the Career Achievement Award and described film as “the ultimate mirror up to nature.”

Even though it’s located about six hours north of where I currently reside, I admittedly knew very little about the Winchester Mystery House prior to last week, which is when Daily Dead attended a special tour of one of the most haunted houses in America, alongside Michael and Peter Spierig. The duo recently celebrated the debut of the new trailer for their upcoming supernatural horror project, Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built, which stars Oscar-winner Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, and Sarah Snook (who the directors recently collaborated with on Predestination), and the filmmakers were eager to head inside and talk more about the lengths they went to in order to stay true to who they believed Sarah Winchester was, and her passion for turning Winchester into one of the most perplexing properties in history.
