Not that bad movie as people writes below.
The subtitle should not be "The House that Spirits Built." It should have been "An Adequate Cure for Insomnia." 2/10

I've been to the 'tourist trap' house-museum, and have watched a few documentaries on this fascinating, crazy house. If you are interested in the house, look up a documentary on the subject. If you're looking for a chilling haunted house story, look elsewhere.
Still an interesting watch though...
Decent haunted house chiller. It's not amazing, but it's definitely not deserving of the hate it's getting. While a little convoluted, the logic and rules set up in the film are interesting.
it's an "okay" kinda movie. at times it felt like a Supernatural episode. there were over 100 rooms in the mansion but we only got to see a few of them. Helen Mirren's acting is probably the best thing about this movie
Unfairly maligned by critics and some Trakt reviewers, this isn't as bad as you have heard. Sure, it's no classic - it's a little muddled, the resolution is rushed - but in the hands of the talented Spierig brothers, there is style to spare. It's not a scary film, but the tale is intriguing, whether you buy into the 'true' story behind the film or not.
It's not a bad movie at all, the story-line is interesting, it just wasn't scary at all.
I thought the movie was a pleasant watch. Not really scary, but with good visuals, acting and a nice atmosphere. I did not mind the plot either. I think it was just not exciting, but I enjoy slow-paced stories when they are well edited, and this one was.
The jumpscares and makeup for the ghosts are very bad, but the photography is kinda nice.However, the reason given for all these ghosts haunting the house is... well... very idiotic.
Actually I really loved the movie!
I am thoroughly disappointed that I wasted an hour and forty minutes of my life watching this garbage. It was completely predictable. Not scary at all. All of the acting by all of the actors was completely sub-par. If Mrs. Winchester actually acted like how this lady portrayed, then the house is not haunted, she was just bat shit crazy and felt guilt for her husband creating a weapon that killed thousands back then. Seriously, do not waste your time on this. Watch The Possession of Michael King if you are looking for a good horror/suspense movie to watch! Trust me! I gave this a 1!
