A lengthy new video interview with horror master John Carpenter concerning his return to the big screen with his highly anticipated film The Ward has surfaced online, and we’ve got it for ya!
The interview comes courtesy of the French film site Blog Didier Allouch, and the Carpenter segment (which is in English) begins at about the 2:50 mark.
The Ward, Carpenter’s long awaited return to the big screen, stars Amber Heard, Danielle Panabaker, Lyndsy Fonseca, Jared Harris, and Mamie Gummer. The film, currently in post, is produced by Doug Mankoff, Andrew Spaulding, Peter Block, and Mike Marcus; and a synopsis follows:
Kristen, a beautiful but troubled young woman, finds herself bruised, cut, drugged, and held against her will in a remote ward of a psychiatric hospital. She is completely disoriented with no idea why she was brought to this place and no memory of her life before being admitted. All she knows is that she isn’t safe.
The other patients in the ward, four equally disturbed young women, 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 frightening sounds. It appears they are not alone.
One-by-one the other girls begin to disappear, and Kristen must find a way out of this hellish place before she, too, becomes a victim. As she struggles to escape, she will uncover a truth far more dangerous and horrifying than anyone could have imagined.
