While the Ward still hasn’t seen the light of day in North America yet, the UK is getting it’s first look at legendary director John Carpenter’s newest film when it arrives on DVD and Blu Ray. However many dates are currently saying the release is May 16th, when Den of Geeks is announcing that Warner Brother’s UK has pushed it back to October. While this may have to do with the studio wanting to keep it under wrap until the North American release of the film, you still have the opportunity to pre order it via Amazon UK.
Edit: Amazon UK haschanged it’s release date to October 11.
John Carpenter’s The Ward, a psychological thriller about a young woman locked in a mysterious mental institution in the 1960s, marks iconic horror master John Carpenter’s first feature film in over seven years.
Kristen (Amber Heard), 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 realizes 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.
