Winchester-- My take on the movie with spoilers!

Imagine being the person behind an ingenious invention only for it to be used for nefarious deeds.
There must be a reason why guns were first thought of and invented. Centuries from now, that very weapon is responsible for taking away thousands of lives and most of them innocent ones.
Winchester is a movie about the Winchesters, particularly Sarah Winchester- a widow who has inherited a company that brings in profits but also the burden of being responsible for the killings caused by the rifles.
We are at first introduced to a doctor who has chosen to abuse medication as an escape from his tragic past. He is always in the company of women, always high and resorts to cheap parlor tricks to impress everyone.
When he is called upon by a staff member of the Winchester company, the doctor doesn’t realize that it is Sarah herself who has employed him to evaluate her mental state.

It will have a hook and transport you away from your mundane existence.
Of course, some horror movies are unintentionally funny and plain nonsensical. But I’d still watch that rather than a movie that takes a bleak look at how unfair life is.
Cutting to the chase, Dark Awakening was actually, surprisingly good. It did have some low points but that comes toward the end. Until the film takes a rather abrupt turn in the second part of the second half, the story does have some interesting moments and the actors too do a decent job.
Just goes to show that you don’t need big stars and crazy CGI budget to make a decent horror movie. You need a good story, a good director, and good actors. Had the ending been tweaked a little, this movie would have b…

The family who plays together stays together.
Over the years, the proverb has been manipulated several times.
Basically, any family who does any task together is considered loyal and ideal.
Blood is Blood plays with the proverb a bit: a family who murders together, stays together.
Yes, we are introduced to a seemingly normal high society family who are about to welcome a woman into their family. She is about to marry Crew and already Brie, the sister has a problem. Daniel has an unhealthy obsession with Crew's fiancée Sara and Jess... She has another part to play in the story.
Brie is shown to have mental issues and at first, we are convinced she is predicting the future. The film intercuts with scenes from past to present and we learn Brie is possessive of her family, especially Jess who she has had visions of being murdered by a woman in a polka dress. Naturally, she believes it is Sara and gifts her an …
