Full Trailer for John Carpenter's The Ward
01.06.11 by Ryan
John Carpenter's last feature-length directorial effort was 2001's Ghosts of Mars, which wasn't exactly warmly received. After that, Carpenter admitted to feeling "burn out" and, outside of a pair of episodes of Showtime's Masters of Horror series, took a break from directing until his latest, the psychological horror movie The Ward.
A synopsis and partial trailer debuted earlier this week, but now the full trailer and poster have been released for The Ward, which stars Amber Heard as a haunted patient of a mental institution and is filled with the kind of scares and creepy tone that were the hallmarks of earlier Carpenter movies like 1978's Halloween and 1980's The Fog.
The Ward currently has no U.S. release date, but will debut in the UK on January 21. Jared Harris, Danielle Panabaker, Lyndsy Fonseca, and Mamie Gummer co-star.
