Movies They Oughtta Make: Take 1
Since it's summer and there are maybe three movies coming out that I actually will pay to go see, I figure I've got two choices. I can either bitch about how there are only three movies coming out that I actually will pay to go see or I can tell Hollywood what movies they should be making.
Welcome to Katwood.
Building For Ghosts
The first movie they should make is the story of poor Sarah Winchester. The heiress to the Winchester Rifle fortune, she lost several members of her family tragically. On the advice of a spiritualist she moved to the West and began building a massive home that would house the spirits of all those killed by Winchester rifles. The multimillion dollar home has stairs that lead nowhere, oddly-shaped rooms designed for oddly-shaped ghosts and countless other strange attributes. Sarah believed that she was cursed, and would die if she ever stopped building. She spent thirty-eight years on the house, and didn't stop building until her death. Through the use of spiritualists she is said to have repeatedly welcomed the dead into the home.
Imagine the movie possibilities. Violence. Haunting. Tragic lost love. I'd go see it.
