A few days ago we gave y'all a late little Christmas present in the form of a U.K. trailer for John Carpenter's THE WARD - an atmospheric asylum picture starring Amber Heard and Danielle Panabaker. Ready to take it a step further?
I hope so, because we just landed a full length trailer and new one-sheet for Carpenter's return to the genre after a 10 year hiatus. Now that the film is starting to amp up the press material, maybe we're closer to a domestic release than previously thought.
Written by Shawn and Michael Rasmussen, THE WARD centers on:
Kristen, a beautiful but troubled young woman, who finds herself bruised, cut, drugged, and held against her will in a remote ward of a Psychiatric Hospital. She is completely disoriented, with no idea why she was brought to this place and no memory of her life before being admitted. All she knows is that she isn't safe.
The other patients in the ward, four equally disturbed young women, offer no answers, and Kristen quickly realizes things are not as they seem. The air is heavy with secrets, and at night, when the hospital is dark and foreboding, she hears strange and frightening sounds. It appears they are not alone.
One-by-one the other girls begin to disappear and Kristen must find a way out of this hellish place before she, too, becomes a victim. As she struggles to escape, she will uncover a truth far more dangerous and horrifying than anyone could have imagined.
Lyndsy Fonseca, Mika Boorem, Jared Harris, Mamie Gummer, Laura-Leigh, Sydney Sweeney, Sean Cooke, Milos Milicevic and Jillian Kramer help level out the cast.
