Blu-ray Art and Official Specs: John Carpenter’s The Ward

Post Thumb:


We’re just a couple of short weeks away from John Carpenter’s The Ward hitting Blu-ray and DVD so we figured it was about time to hit you off with the official specs and art! Dig it!

From the Press Release: ARC Entertainment and XLrator Media announce the return of legendary filmmaker John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) after a ten-year hiatus with the release of his psychological thriller JOHN CARPENTER’S THE WARD on DVD and Blu-ray August 16, 2011.

The film stars an ensemble cast – Amber Heard (Drive Angry 3D, Zombieland), Lyndsy Fonseca (Kick-Ass, CW’s “Nikita”), Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th, The Crazies), Mamie Gummer (Taking Woodstock) and Jared Harris (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, AMC’s “Mad Men”). The DVD and Blu-ray include exclusive commentary by John Carpenter and Jared Harris.

Acclaimed director John Carpenter makes his long awaited comeback to the screen with a thriller about a young woman in a 1960s mental institution who becomes terrorized by malevolent unseen forces. Kristen, a beautiful but troubled young woman, finds herself bruised, cut, drugged with laughing gas. 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.

    Predictability aside, I’m glad I’ll finally get to watch this damn movie fairly soon!

    Wow was this a disappointment. I was cheering for Carpenter but this really is a below average film.

    The movie is well shot but the story hangs on an obvious twist that we’ve all seen done several times before. The worst part is it’s been done so much better.

    It is depressing that a man who made so many brilliant movies chose this script for his overdue return to directing. I can’t explain it.
