I'm 36 years old and in 1981 the first horror movie I saw was JohnCarpenters "Halloween". I was 6 year old and subsequently I became anúber fan of the Director. I've worshiped the great ones (Assault onprecinct 13, Halloween, The Fog, Escape from New York, The Thing,Prince of Darkness) enjoyed the ...
Nicely shot, if slightly claustrophobic, thriller set in the 60's, thatwas better than I expected. After a young woman is found setting fire to an abandoned house she istaken to the local asylum. There she meets 5 other young women, allpatients because of various mental 'illnesses'. What follows is ...
I saw this movie because I came across the reviews of some ravingfan-boys calling this one a return to form for Carpenter. Frankly, thatwould not have been enough, but then it had Amber Heard and LindsayFonseca in it. So I went.It started slow and steady and I thought that was a good thing becauseth...
Yet another summing up project from Master of Horror John Carpenter.This time he's revisiting the hospital killing ground of Halloween 2,without the much missed Donald Pleasence to anchor the story.Confidently directed by Carpenter, after nearly a decade away fromfeature films, and well-acted by its...
For the people who didn't enjoy this I can understand this somewhat, itdoes have some weak aspects but overall I enjoyed the film. It has akind of classic, low budget sense about it. I liked the premise of thisfilm, an amnesiac in a psychiatric institution is being terrorized by aghost that is stalk...
As a big fan of horror and also of John Carpenter, I was very muchlooking forward to 'The Ward'. The first half of the film is a typicalset up for a creepy 'ghost in the hospital' film, but is made lessenjoyable by all the mental hospital clichés. There's the stubborn oldnurse (always with her pill...
Oh dear, I rented this film with high hopes of a return to form fromJohn Carpenter - the director who brought us Halloween (the 1978version not the turgid Rob Zombie re-hash) and The Thing (1980).Unfortunately, whilst being nowhere near as excruciating as 2001'sGhosts of Mars and the frankly ridicul...
Probably like many who grew up with Halloween, The Fog, The Thing,Starman etc there has been a real sad sense of "What happened to JohnCarpenter?" considering the horrors (bad pun) of later films.I'm glad to say while this isn't perfect, perhaps the 1st act is toolong, this was really enjoyable and ...
The Ward is an adequate horror film but could have been directed byanyone; after such a long hiatus one would expect John Carpenter toproduce something much, much better.The film suffers from a fairly weak script (not penned by Carpenter)and the big "surprise" ending is easily deduced very early in ...
Returning to the director's chair after a ten year absence, you mightthink that during all that time, director John Carpenter would havegone through a lot of proposed projects and picked the best one of allfor a comeback. I have absolutely no idea why Carpenter picked "TheWard" for his comeback. It ...
If one didn't see veteran filmmaker John Carpenter's name on thisproduction, they might not believe he actually was responsible. As wassaid in another review, this is not the return to form we fans ofCarpenter were hoping for, after his almost decade long self imposedbreak. It's not badly made or an...
This movie was a big disappointment, was hoping for it to be so muchmore, and it was just a remake of "Identity" anyone who has seen thatmovie, this is a spoiler, if you haven't, watch that one, the actorsand direction are much better. Upsides on this one, its a fairly cleanhorror flick, no nudity, ...
I felt it was very drawn out. Tiny little pieces were given along theway and it built to a huge, twist finish. The characters werebelievable and there left enough unclosed at the end to make your owndecision, without any confusion - it ended without ending.It is very riveting despite the drab surrou...
The Good: The movie is well acted by all. All of the actors did a greatand realistic job of conveying the situation of being locked up in a'new age', yet old-school insane asylum. The twist at the end helpedtremendously. Though it wasn't entirely inspired by originality, itjustified the past 100 min...
There has been a lot of "mental health" stuff in the cinema recently,and in almost all cases the storyline has played a trick on theaudience in the manner of the brilliant "Sixth Sense". There is historyin this too with the Three Faces of Eve standing out as the way toentertain, enlighten and educat...
John Carpenter has made some of my favourite films, however, his morerecent efforts have been a little wide of the mark. So it was with muchtrepidation that I hit the play button for this one; the reports I'dread had not been encouraging. Sorry to say the reports were right tosome extent, although I...
I have been waiting for a year to see this movie and it's not reallywhat I was expecting... First of all it looks like a Master of Horrorepisode or a TV movie more than a Carpenter theater movie...the monsteris really not credible, I could have done better with less money forsure... The story is pre...
In 1966, in North Bend, Oregon, the runaway Kristen (Amber Heard) iscaptured by the police after burning down a farmhouse and is locked inthe North Bend Psychiatric Hospital. Kristen is introduced to Dr.Gerald Stringer (Jared Harris), who uses experimental therapy. Then shemeets the inmates Emily (M...
I have no idea what anyone gets from this film. I nearly left afterhalf an hour, and it didn't improve. I spent more time laughing thananything else. The ghost is predictable, what the ghost does ispredictable. Seems rather an incompetent ghost, actually. As ghosts go,these days."Jump" moments are e...
Predictable, slow, open ended, the patients look more like models, whenthe ending is revealed it makes no sense. I would have preferredelectro shock therapy instead of this nonsense. I love Carpenter, TheFog, Halloween, Big Trouble In Little China, This was Shutter Islandbut with girls and as bad, j...
I looked forward to watching John Carpenter come back and win his titleof the horror movie Mystro that he was some time ago i.e The FOG, TheyLive and Halloween..But good god this movie plays out like a cheaperversion of Shutter Island but with good looking girls and a terriblelooking Supernatural Ki...
I had to turn off before was gone 30 minutes. Therefore, my view of thefilm is not fully done as a complete review. But I will tell you why Iturned off. The actors who play the girls who live on the closed wardis so miserable that I could not bear to look at their plays. It makesme disappointed that...
This is shockingly routine, as far as Carpenter goes. It's veryderivative with prison themes you've seen plenty of times before inthese types of psychological horror films. What makes this better thanothers is the proficiency of the cast. It also has some decent build-upgoing for it, and some boo sc...

A few days in, she gets attacked by a rotting corpse. Atleast that is what she sees.They give her electroshock therapy to 'just fry the crazy out of h...
