Whichever way you wield it, Winchester is a misfire.

Total Film by Matt Glasby

For all their technical competence, the Spierig brothers don’t show great understanding of how ghost stories actually work.

The Hollywood Reporter by Stephen Dalton

Mirren always brings a touch of class, of course, even to deluxe schlock like this. But Clarke is something of a blank leading man while the secondary characters are mostly pale phantoms sleepwalking through a thinly drawn plot.

The Telegraph by Tim Robey

The film has about five sets and they never feel like they connect together, but this is less an attempt at disorienting the viewer than simply cutting corners; the grisly, overdone lighting, meanwhile, makes you want to hide behind your fingers for all the wrong reasons.

IGN by William Bibbiani

You won't lose yourself in this haunted house, even though that was supposed to be the whole point. A film about a labyrinth filled with ghosts quickly becomes methodical and familiar, stranding a great cast in an inert supernatural thriller.
