Sarah Winchester; A Mystery House

Sarah Winchester; A Mystery House

This documentary allows insight into the extraordinary life of Sarah Winchester, heiress of the double-barrel rifle magnate William Winchester and the curse of his multi-million legacy that was to consume her entire existence. Filmed in San Jose at the gargantuan labyrinth mansion, Yung interviews long-standing director Shozo Kagoshima and is granted access behind tourist showcase to share personal accounts from staff as they divulge the parts and pieces of a life directed by séances and 38 year endless construction. Fact and fiction merge; we are left to consider the internal workings of a tortured figure dripping in blood money, and the nature of her hauntings; whether from psychosis or inexplicable paranormal occurrence.
