If you’re anything like us, we’re pretty sure that you cannot wait to see John Carpenter’s return to the big screen with The Ward. Thankfully to help lessen the burden of the wait, a new (in hopefully a series) video production diary has hit the Net.
The video appeared on the official John Carpenter website, and you can dig on it by clicking the image below.
The Ward is an intense psychological thriller set in a mental institution where a young woman, Kristen, is haunted by a mysterious and deadly ghost. As danger creeps closer, she comes to realize that this ghost might be darker than she could have imagined.
Kristen, who is in her early 20’s, wakes to find herself bruised, cut, drugged, and held against her will in a remote ward of Chamberlain Psychiatric Hospital. She is completely disoriented with no idea why she was brought to this place and no memory of her life.
The other patients in the ward, four equally troubled girls, 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 disturbing sounds. It appears they are not alone.
One by one the girls disappear, and Kristen must find a way out of this hellish place before the ghost comes for her, too. As she struggles to escape, she will uncover a truth far more dangerous and horrifying than anyone could have imagined.
We know Carpenter has some more in him! Let’s hope The Ward turns out to be a return to form for the master!
