      I wanted something to watch late last night that was interesting but didn’t have a plot that was overly complicated. So, I fell back onto my usual horror genre and picked out one that seemed interesting; Haunting of Winchester House.

      I actually was familiar with the Winchester House legend (thank you Ghost


      Hunters) and the fact the woman that lived there, the wife of the guy who invented the Winchester rifle, spent a fortune renovating the place to keep spirits of those killed with the weapon at bay.

      However, this movie did not do that legend justice at all.

      First of all, the plot, which involved a family moving into the house as caretakers, made no sense.

      They were haunted but the movie makes it seem like they are being haunted by those who tormented the woman before and we later find out it is the woman herself.

      Very dumb.

      And, the rooms are so dark,

      you can’t see a thing that is going on.

      The ending really didn’t make much sense either.

      I’m sorry, but the whole realizing you are actually dead thing has been done too many times before and it was a twist that just seemed wasted considering it didn’t really do much to explain

      the rest of the happenings at the house (other than the fact they couldn’t be heard on the telephone and a few comments made by the local paranormal investigator).

      This movie is a complete waste of time and I would not recommend taking the time to watch it; even if you can’t find anything better on TV.
