John Carpenter's 'The Ward' Hits Shelves Today!

New postby Matt_Molgaard » Tue Aug 16, 2011 1:47 pm

Being an unbridled fan of John Carpenter, I found it necessary to drop a brief reminder on the horrorbid community: The Ward officially arrives on DVD and Bu-ray today!

The Ward has received mixed reviews from critics, but that may not be an appropriate measuring stick. This is a film that needs to be viewed in order to draw your own personal conclusions. Let’s not forget after all that The Fog, Prince of Darkness and Halloween II (which Carpenter penned, not directed) were all met with sketchy embrace by media, and all of them turned out to be quality pictures.

Synopsis:

In John Carpenter’s The Ward, 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 realises 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.

Damn, I didn't even know this hit theaters yet! ..Or is this a straight to dvd release!?

I remember coming across the trailer several months ago and thinking "What the Fuck!?"...
Sanitariums are NOT full of beautiful young ladies! You'll actually find the COMPLETE OPPOSITE in American sanitariums! (Trust me, I know)...
But that's just typical bad horror-movie bullshit I suppose! LoLz..

"Carpenter proves he is still a the master of Shock"....

It would be more shocking if he actually researched the conditions of American sanitariums today, and the people within them.. I guarantee you those horror stories are a hell of a lot more shocking!

it had a limited run in theaters, good sized festival stint. Its on disc today officially. I was really surprised to find it was an extremely easy pick up where i'm at (city of less than 100,000k and limited locales).
