If you can name the last John Carpenter film, you’re a better buff than I. If you can name the last good John Carpenter film, you would say, “In the Mouth of Madness,” because that’s technically correct (the best kind of correct).
Now, with The Ward, he’s driven Amber Heard crazy and tossed her into a group shower where a ghost can attack her.
All of this will make more sense once you’ve seen the trailer:
Women in Prison film? Ghost story? Slasher? All three?
The delusional trip through the psycho ward is incredibly old ground to cover as it dates back to the first horror film ever made, however The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari did not have Amber Heard (who is contractually obligated to appear nude in every film she’s hired for (even if she’s working as the cinematographer)), and Carpenter is a man with a legacy to protect.
Hopefully, this film will be a return to form.
Also, hopefully it will be inside a theater in the United States sometime this year.
