3-D glasses in place, we settled ourselves down for a bit of a fright---we thought. Who wouldn't love to visit the spirits inhabiting the haunted Winchester House, in 3-D. Instead, what we experienced was a blast from the past, which led to uncontrollable giggling and a room filled with rib-splitting comments. The hairstyles, and setting, looked straight out of the late 60's. The only give-away, that this film wasn't from lost archives, was the daughter's iPod. Unfortunately, the acting was about as bad as some of the low-budget horror films, playing the outdoor screens, of bygone years. Only then, we didn't complain; it was a dollar a carload.

As bad as we found this movie to be, credit is due for the moment of backward, time-travel, and the campy feel of the film, hence the three stars, but I suspect this was not the producer's intention. Or, maybe it was; they couldn't have been serious. Could they? I would recommend a viewing for baby boomers who would like to reminisce about the past, particularly with a group of friends who also experienced some of the early 3-D movies. It could be fun with the right crowd.

The 3-D option was rather disappointing, though. It was dark and hard on the eyes and did not add any scare factor. We actually had to turn it off before the end, because it became headache inducing, when our eyes suddenly started crossing from the strain. But, many of the new 3-D films have been sub-par, the exception being Coraline, which I consider the best of the recent bunch, and quite eerie, in a subtle way.

Unless you're a serious collector of retro, or retro type horror films, I'd recommend you rent this one first, and give it a go. I also think everyone that refuses to answer the doorbell on Halloween should be made to sit through this film. That would teach 'em!

...if she saw this horrible film very very very loosely based on "true events" surrounding her infamous house. I hate when movie makers give a movie the tag line "based on true events" but then they take no care and consideration in even getting the story close. While the story of Sarah Winchester herself is true, and it is believed that a medium told her that the spirits of people killed by the Winchester rifle were haunting her, this interesting true life tale has little to do with the film. Neither is the story of her house which she continued building and adding on for years until she died.

Instead, we are presented with three bad actors with bad haircuts - a father, mother, and daughter - that move into the Winchester Mansion for a few days. It's not really explained why they move into the house. Like most haunted house films, they start finding newspaper clippings and photos that might help them explain the haunting, but this is just barely tapped into. The best of these explanations is a photo of a man with a small chalkboard hanging around his neck; he's deaf and uses the chalkboard to communicate. But like I said, the directors and writers of this film barely scratch the surface.

Instead, we're taken on a dark, frightful run around the house as the parents panic when their daughter goes missing. Odd spirits with facial deformities appear and attack the parents, even Sarah Winchester herself attacks policeman who show up after the father calls in his daughter's disappearance. The special effects are horrible, actually there weren't really any special effects. Just running around and panic, scary music, and bad lighting. Let's not forget the horrible script.

Normally I would slam a cheesy movie like this, but I'm giving this three stars for some actually creepy moments and a pretty cool ending. It wasn't totally bad. You can't blame the actors, I mean, a script like this did not require Meryl Streep in the title role. It seemed like they were having fun, and I actually had fun watching this, and making fun of this, which was half the fun! Great ending, that's all I can say on that. Not really sure why they made any reference to Winchester House at all, I think they could have just left that out and they probably would have had a better movie. It seems most people felt ripped off because it had nothing to do with the actual Winchester House, except stealing the story of the legend of the house to make this movie. Really wasn't necessary though. The photo of the people in the 19th century had much better hair styles than the caretaker family did. And Harrison Dent looked like he just walked out of a Shaft movie. That's part of the "bad" charm of this little flick. And hey, did you know that squirrels will eat your nuts? Yeah, it's a joke, a bad joke, what else would you expect from this movie. I am not going to come right out and recommend this movie and get some folks mad at me for making them spend $5.00 on this after rummaging through the Wal-Mart DVD bargain bin. But I myself feel it was $5.00 well spent. It was either this or a Michael Jackson DVD. I prefer this.

Not sure what some of the "bad" reviewers are looking for in a ghost story, but this film certainly has them and mamages to entertain and scare at the same time. Creepy, dark atmosphere, ghosts around every corner, and great soundtrack with haunting effects. The ending will catch you totally off gaurd. I liked it! In fact, it's one of the better horror flicks i've seen in a while. The film is inspired by the incidents surrounding the supposed "ghosts" at the real Winchester mansion. You know the story of the Winchester rifle family who claim the souls of those killed by Winchester guns returned to haunt the mansion and all who dwell inside. Turn out the lights and enjoy....remember, it's only a movie..isn't it?
