Dame Helen Mirren stars in Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built, a horror movie about the infamous mansion that was home to firearm heiress Sarah Winchester. The Winchester House was built in 1884 and Winchester claimed it was haunted by the spirits of those killed by Winchester firearms. In order to fool the spirits, Winchester continually added onto the rooms and corridors of the mansion. Construction continued unabated until her death in 1922.

“On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester, (Mirren) heiress to the Winchester fortune, it is a house that knows no end. Constructed in an incessant twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week mania for decades, it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms. To the outsider, it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece (Sarah Snook) or for the brilliant Doctor Eric Price (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…” - Bloody Disgusting

Now for something completely different: Attack of the Killer Donuts. This one is a horror “comedy” from Level 3 Entertainment. I would tell you some of the actors and the director, but you don’t know them. Trust me.

Finally, the eighth Saw movie, titled Jigsaw, will be in theaters this weekend. Fans of the franchise have been picking apart all of the previous films, theorizing who and what will appear in the new movie, and generally being stoked. With that, an official infographic has been compiled that lays out all of the carnage from the previous seven movies.

Of note: unlike other horror franchises, fewer women are placed into Jigsaw’s traps and the women that are tested have a higher survival rate than the men.
