The Ward Movie

The Ward is an upcoming horror thriller movie directed Director John Carpenter. The story revolves around a young woman in a 1960s mental institution who becomes terrorized by a mysterious and deadly ghost. The film is starring Amber Heard, Danielle Panabaker, Mamie Gummer, Lyndsy Fonseca, and Jared Harris. The Ward movie will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, but there's no official release date yet.

Here below a video showing the behind the scenes of The Ward:

"When an old farmhouse is set ablaze by Kristen (Amber Heard), a distraught young woman, she is taken by police to the North Bend Psychiatric Hospital. She awakens in a special ward with four similarly unbalanced and wayward girls: Sarah, a flirty and sass-talking know it all; Iris, a sensitive and talented artist who tries to make her feel welcome; Emily, a reckless but playful outcast; and Zoey, who hides behind a childlike persona and her beloved stuffed bunny.
Kirsten's therapist, Dr. Stringer (Jared Harris), tries to uncover the root cause of her breakdown, but despite his calm and understanding manner, she resists any attempts at help and rehabilitation.
Unfortunately, the hospital is not the sanctuary it seems to be. Kristen begins to have strange run-ins with a shadowy phantom who roams the halls when the ward is locked down at night. Persistent and inquisitive, she goes digging for information about former patients and soon becomes convinced that no one ever leaves the ward alive."

Good to see John Carpenter back behind the cameras! I bet the Ward is going to be a damned freaking scary movie.
