The Ward has the feel of a low-budget picture but is still quite well shot. This mysterious movie has some frightening shock-filled moments however it's not the best work from director John Carpenter but it's still watchable.
Synopsis - SPOILER ALERT
After burning down a farmhouse, Kristen (Amber Heard) is captured by the police in North Bend, Oregon in 1966. She is locked in the Psychiatric Hospital, where she is introduced to Dr. Gerald Stringer (Jared Harris), who will treat her during her stay. There she meets the four other inmates Sarah (Danielle Panabaker), Emily (Mamie Gummer), Iris (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Zoey (Laura-Leigh). After the experimental therapy of Dr. Gerald does not work, Kristen starts to see the ghost of a woman names Alice Leigh Hudson (Jillian Kramer), who also lived in this hospital. She was not very popular with her inmates. Therefore, Alice was killed by the others and now avenges herself and kills one patient after another. After Kristen is being chased by Alice, she runs to Dr. Stringer's office and sniffs around his desk. What she finds there, changes her whole perspective.
The director of The Ward is none other than John Carpenter. He also worked on movies like Halloween, The Fog (1980) and many more good movies.
