Only Sanity Can Keep You Alive
A thriller centered on an institutionalized young woman who becomes terrorized by a ghost.
The suspense and terror are no longer what they were replaced by boredom and predictability. For 80 minutes out of a total of 88 Carpenter makes you think you're watching an episode of Supernatural.
In a mental hospital with very polite doctors,a patient with pyromaniac tendencies make his appearance. Kristen, a smart blonde, does not want to stay in the pavilion although we have no idea why she burned a house.In the first night,strange incidents start happening.In the second night a ghost makes its appearance.The problem is that the ghost begins to kill her colleagues in strange ways.
From a technical standpoint, the film is great.The soundtrack and atmosphere are the best things about the film.Most of the performances were…
Next time John Carpenter decides to make a film, let's not let him.
The Ward is awful and I'm falling asleep so I'm going to make this short and sweet.
1) Mamie Gummer is a great name. It sounds like she should be in a racist 1920s silent historical epic though. She's terrible in this.
2) This is the worst nuthouse ever. The doctor leaves a fucking knife lying around, they don't lock the doors and it's piss easy to escape. Not exactly Strangeways, is it?
3) How did John Carpenter, of all people, make a film set in a nuthouse and manage to get absolutely…
Terrible acting, terrible script, terrible story, terrible jump scares. Just terrible. I have never been a fan of John Carpenter and he does nothing here to change my mind.
P.S. How do you kill a ghost with an axe? Hint: you can't.
The 2016 Cult Movie Challenge - Week 14 - Carpenter (and Craven) week
There are a few directors where I can't help feeling like a contrarian - I swear I don't try to be awkward, but when it comes to Brian De Palma (Mission to Mars is SO GOOD) or John Carpenter (Memoirs of an Invisible Man forever!), I just don't seem to sync up with the consensus at all. The weirdest thing with Carpenter is that I actually think I prefer him as a musician to a film director, and yet my favourite of his films are the ones where he didn't do the music. Uh, whatever.
Anyway, one point where I do agree with the general opinion of…
I was told this would be a John Carpenter's movie, when it's in fact a generic and forgetable haunting film by a random young american filmmaker whose next film will be something like Wrong Turn 9 and then we are never going to heard of him again.
The Ward is an experiment in how many pervasive intrusions on an austere formalism can be handled by an audience.
Hokey wipes, unforgivably rushed shot durations, a poor imitation of Carpenter's iconic musical scores, and a banal script that lacks humor or horror - these are really only a fraction of the elements fighting against the film's inimitable mise en scene.
The script's approach to pseudo-psychology and horror tropes is so stale and predictable that one is left wondering about the purpose of such laziness. Did the producers and screenwriters align themselves with the auteurist theology that an auteur's lesser films are more worthy of study than the finest films of a mediocre director? Did they really believe that any…
This psych ward is for STYLISH CRAZY BABES ONLY.
This shows Carpenter is completely capable of making good stuff, just wish the source material was stronger. Still though, a solid return to form.
Part 18 of my John Carpenter movie marathon. It is finally over.
Not a great way to cap off the marathon, John. I feel really sad now.
John Carpenter honestly created one of the most worthless excuses for a film ever. I'm heartbroken.
I mean, it does nothing to tarnish him in any way, but wow, what in the world was this film? I've heard it was generic, pfft. That is a compliment after watching it. Carpenter's past efforts in the realm of horror weren't ever, EVER this typecast level. He provided terror, but often out of different facets. Making you think, utilizing subtext beyond the visual. All you get here is a lowbrow insane asylum film w/no signature style (other than a few dissolves), dull presence, not a single scene being worth a damn, conceding to non stop jump scares to fuck w/the audience, terrible misshapen…
what kind of fetishes do i have
Day 2: The Ward. This movie's not that great but fairly entertaining. Decent acting and the film is well directed. The music is cool. The only real issue here is the script, unfortunately, sine that's arguably the most important part.
The dialog is not very good, sometimes plain bad. The plot screams last second twist from the very beginning of the movie and it's somewhat frustrating to watch as you just wait and wait and wait for the twist to come like winter in Westeros. But like Game of Thrones, as annoying as it can be, you can't tear your eyes away either, it's oddly compelling.
