Trailer Sneak Peek: John Carpenter’s The Ward

Okay so 2011 is off to a pretty weird start. Birds are falling out of the sky, fish are dying en masse, and now we have your first look at the trailer for John Carpenter’s The Ward. Well, sort of. We actually have half of the trailer. That’s right — half the trailer.

Trailer Sneak Peek: John Carpenter's The WardWhile no US release date has been officially announced yet, our friends in the UK will be seeing the flick in cinemas on January 21st, 2011. Below you’ll find half of the UK theatrical trailer, which just popped up online, that happens to be home to a lot of never-before-seen footage. Look for the other half, or the completed trailer we’re sure very soon.

Lyndsy Fonseca, Amber Heard, Danielle Panabaker, and Jared Harris star.

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.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Why the hell do the Brits get everything decent before North America?


    • Shambling_in_Bandages

      You can probably count the number of times we in the UK have got “everything decent” before North America in single digits.

      Perhaps this is to make up for the 99.9% of the time when North America gets everything – irrespective of quality – before the UK and the 99.9% of the time North America gets better DVD releases than the UK?

        I agree – the UK is normally significantly lagging behind the US in the decent movie release department…

      We also had North America before you too! 😉

    I’m glad to see Amber Heard getting more and more roles. She’s a really promising actress.

    Still waiting for All the Boys Love Mandy Lane to come out on DVD in the states…
