The Ward: Exclusive: John Carpenter and Amber Heard Interview

"It has been 10 long years, but, finally, John Carpenter is back. The director of such classics as Halloween, Escape From New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, and They Live, has returned with a brand new horror project entitled The Ward, his first film since John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars in 2001.

The Ward centers on a troubled young woman named Kristen (Amber Heard), who is placed in a mental institution after a traumatic event which she has no recollection of. Shortly after meeting the other four young women of The Ward (Danielle Panabaker, Lyndsy Fonseca, Mamie Gummer, Laura-Leigh) and Dr. Stringer (Jared Harris), certain things don't add up, and Kristen realizes she is not safe in The Ward.

Synopsis: 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.
