Warner Bros. has released a grip of photos from its upcoming John Carpenter madhouse frightener The Ward. The images give us a peek at some of the all-girl cast, including leads Amber Heard (Drive Angry) and Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies).
The official synopsis reads:
When an old farmhouse is set ablaze by Kristen (Heard), a distraught young woman, she is taken by police to the North Bend Psychiatric Hospital. She awakens in a special ward with four similarly unbalanced and wayward girls.
Kirsten’s therapist, Dr. Stringer, tries to uncover the root cause of her breakdown, but despite his calm and understanding manner, she resists any attempts at help and rehabilitation.
Unfortunately, the hospital is not the sanctuary it seems to be. Kristen begins to have strange run-ins with a shadowy phantom who roams the halls when the ward is locked down at night. Persistent and inquisitive, she goes digging for information about former patients and soon becomes convinced that no one ever leaves the ward alive.
The Ward marks Carpenter’s return to the director’s chair since 2001’s Ghosts of Mars. Costars include Lyndsy Fonseca (”Nikita”), Mamie Gummer (”The Good Wife”), Jillian Kramer (The Big Bang), Mika Boorem (Kiss the Girls), pretty newcomers Sali Sayer and Laura-Leigh, and Jared Harris (Resident Evil: Apocalypse) as Dr. Stringer.
Commit yourself to The Ward on July 8.
