Before it was a tourist attraction, the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA, was the real-life home of Sarah Winchester – heiress of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company fortune. And while she was alive, you could say the house was too.
It was under constant construction for 38 years and was allegedly haunted by the ghosts of those killed by Winchester firearms. Fact, fiction, or a little bit of both? Watch Winchester and decide.
While it doesn’t have Sara Winchester or any ghosts, we’re pretty sure that you’ll see a lot of death by Winchester rifle when you watch Hostiles.
Christian Bale is back in a 3:10 to Yuma-ish Western that sees him as a Calvary office who must escort a Cheyenne war chief and his family back to their home in Montana. Of course, the saying “easier said than done” comes into play here, but bigger than that is the question of who in Hostiles is really the hostile? Or are we all just hostiles? Did we blow your mind yet?
