Winchester – S03E03

Welcome back, everyone! We hope you’ve survived the bulk of the deadly flu season unscathed. We have, and now that movie season is really starting to fill back in, we’re ready to talk about our next film.

Winchester

Starring Helen Mirren, Sarah Snook, and Jason Clarke, Winchester is “inspired by” true events: those events being the building of an incredibly eclectic home in San Jose, California in the early 1900s by Sarah Winchester.

Welcome back to the Visually Stunning Movie Podcast.

Here’s another movie there has been a lot of excitement about. Starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, based on a series of books by horror-master Stephen King, it’s:

I’ll be honest: though I’ve read my share of Stephen King novels, the Gunslinger books weren’t included, so I’m coming into this blind.

Let’s see how well they pulled off King’s notoriously hard-to-adapt material, shall we?
