Release Year: 2010

Director: John Carpenter

Starring:  Amber Heard, Mamie Gummer, Danielle Panabaker

A John Carpenter directed movie starring Amber Heard, what’s not to like? The Ward follows a young girl in the mid-1960’s who is placed in a mental ward after burning down a house and being arrested by police.

Amber Heard plays Kristen, the institutionalized woman who doesn’t remember her past. To make matters worse for Kristen, she is placed in the same room as a woman named Tammy who uses to stay there, who was mysteriously murdered in the night.

The retro feel of the 60’s plays well for the creepy factor, and the psychological elements involved lead to some disturbing scenes. The Ward represents Carpenter’s first feature film after almost a decade off.
