Carpenter's The Ward finds a home

Don't know what this means in terms of John Carpenter's first film in nine year's getting a theatrical release or not, but The Ward will be distributed in North America through ARC Entertainment and XLrator Media Partnership.

Never heard of them. That can't be good. And it's puzzling too as the trailer below shows the film being distributed around the world by Warner Bros. Hmmmm. Hopefully we'll know more, including a release date, soon.

The Ward stars Amber Heard as 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. Creepy stuff ensues. I admit, I get chills when I see From The Director of Halloween appear in the preview.

Enjoy the footage, and we promise to keep you updated on Carpenter's return to cinemas!


  1. It looks promising. I like how it looks like it's an old 1950's institution, and looks like there some nice old school suspense to it.

  2. Agreed. I think it's a period piece. But not sure. We're just jazzed he's made a new movie, with the promise of more to come!
