JOHN CARPENTER'S THE WARD is a psychological thriller about a young woman who is incarcerated in a mysterious mental institution in the 1960s, and marks renowned horror filmmaker John Carpenter's first feature in over seven years.
Kristen (Amber Heard), a beautiful but troubled woman, finds herself bruised, cut, dragged and held against her will in a remote ward of a psychiatric hospital. Completely disorientated, with no idea why she is there, Kristen cannot remember her life before being admitted but somehow knows she's not safe.
There are four other equally disturbed women on the ward, who are no able to offer any answers either and Kristen is aware that everything is not as it seems. At night she is awakened by strange and frightening sounds, so they are not alone.
One by one the other girls on the ward disappear and Kristen is desperate to find a way out of the hellish place before she too becomes a victim. When she struggles to escape, it's only then that she will uncover a truth far more dangerous and horrifying than anyone could have imagined.
Starring Amber Heard (THE JONES), Marnie Gummer (THE HOAX), Danielle Panabaker (FRIDAY THE 13TH), Lyndsy Fonseca (KICK-ASS), Jared Harris (MAD MEN), Laurie-Leigh and Mika Boorem (THE PATRIOT).
