Movie Review: The Ward (2011)

Amber Heard in The Ward

Photo: Arc Entertainment Note: This review was first published on September 14, 2010 after I saw this film at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. It's being reprinted as it hits limited theaters this weekend.

It seems while Rob Zombie was busy with his horrible remake of John Carpenter's Halloween and Universal is now busy making a prequel to his 1981 classic The Thing, Carpenter has been at home figuring out how he too can get in on the generic horror genre. Taking that into consideration, he's succeeded wildly with The Ward, a subpar psych ward thriller that mines the most cliche of horror film plotlines with laughable performances by the entire cast of twenty-something actresses.

The Ward takes place in North Bend, Oregon in 1966 and centers on Kristen (played to an amateurish thud by Amber Heard) who's just been picked up for torching a local barn. Admitted

The Ward (Review)

2011 - 93 mins. - Rated R

D: John Carpenter

C: Amber Heard, Lyndsy Fonseca, Danielle Panabaker, Mamie Gummer, Jared Harris, Mika Boorem, Sean Cook, Laura-Leigh, Sydney Sweeney, Jillian Kramer, Milos Milicevic, Sali Sayler, D.R. Anderson, Susanna Burney  

Young woman placed in a mental ward must contend with having to deal with a vengeful ghost that is murdering off the other patients.  

Disappointing return to the horror genre for director John Carpenter. The Ward is bland and uninspired. It plays out like a modest budgeted variation on Shutter Island, but without the suspense, visual sophistication or top notch cast that helped in part to make Shutter Island a memorable film experience. The Ward spins a story that involves elements of mystery, but the answers to that mystery are all too obvious The final twist, the big reveal at the end isn't even all that surprising. So what other reasons are there to watch The Ward?

Full official trailer and poster for Carpenter's The Ward

Earlier in the week we brought you that tease for John Carpenter's latest horror movie, The Ward, and now a full trailer and new poster has been released.

Synopsis:

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.
