Helen Mirren says her new film "Winchester" isn't a horror flick. It is, rather, a ghost story with foreign roots and a distinct American element – the psychological impact of gun deaths. Mirren plays the real-life Sarah Winchester, a 19th-century heiress who inherited a massive fortune from her husband's creation of the Winchester repeating rifle shortly after the American Civil War. "There are many theories why she did this," Mirren said, "and [it's] one of the theories that we explore in the film. She was trying to placate the ghosts of the people who'd been killed by the Winchester rifle.Despite the themes of "Winchester," Mirren, 72, said the film isn't trying to make any broad statements about gun ownership in America.
