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.
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.
John.....What the fuck happened, man? Put your game face on the next time for Christ's sake!
The Director's Series-Part V: John Carpenter
In 2010 John Carpenter returned to filmmaking with the low-budget horror film, The Ward, and is every bit of disappointing. Following Ghosts of Mars and Showtimes "Masters of Horror it seemed that Carpenter was pretty much done with filmmaking. What caused him to do another film? Maybe it was to see if he still has it, but the end result is a very forgettable ghost story.
In 1966, Kristen (Amber Heard) is arrested and sent to the North Bend Psychiatric Hospital after burning down a farmhouse. Inside she meets the other patients, Iris, Sarah, Emily and Zoey (Lyndsy Fonseca, Danielle Panabaker, Mamie Gummer, and Laura-Leigh, respectively) and is put under the care of Dr.…
Sí, The Ward está repleta de clichés. Sí, nada es nuevo en su guion y ni siquiera el giro final se nos antoja original. Pero, ¿saben qué? The Ward está fantásticamente fotografiada y brillantemente dirigida. Y eso es difícil de encontrar en este género tan bastardeado por directores que no saben contar con imágenes. John Carpenter es el mejor metteur en scène de la historia del terror, y lo vuelve a demostrar con esta película.
Sé que es mala, pero it's ok (?) XDDDD
I was in the mood for a fun horror film and saw this one by John Carpenter and thought it'd fit the bill. Unfortunately it is quite dull and unsatisfying. I'm not sure it makes much sense either. The chase throughout the asylum towards the end was kind of cool but that's about it.
Que filme horroroso. péssimas atuações e uma direção medíocre de John Carpenter.
Repackaging the 2003 film "Identity" as a horror film is just as incoherent as it sounds.
John Carpenter's latest is set in the 60s and features Amber Heard (yummy) as a troubled girl incarcerated in a psychiatric hospital that happens to have a vindictive spirit roaming its halls. Cool, moody stuff with a nice twist at the end. Far from John's best but better than most of the stuff he cranked out during the 90s.
Well made, well shot, decent atmospherics. And plot holes so big you could drive a garbage truck through them.
I only watched this because I wanted to be a Carpenter completionist... because I love him so much......... I didn't realize... I didn't know.... John.. why? Why did you do this to us? to yourself? I know I saw you in there somewhere- in the dancing scene. I'll never be able to hear about this movie again without bursting into gross baby tears.
come back to us John
