~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

The Ward (2011)

John Carpenter's the Ward [Blu-ray]

Director: John Carpenter
Starring: Amber Heard

A young woman wakes up in a mental institution with no memory as why she's there and who she is. Soon it becomes apparent the ward is haunted by a ghost wanting revenge on the patients.

My Take:
Like many horror fans I yearn for the John Carpenter of mid 70's to mid 80's. Unfortunately you don't get him here. The story is kind of typical. If you're paying attention, the ending shouldn't come as a surprise. Bu at least it's well executed. To be fair, I did jump in my seat a couple of times, so I give it some credit.

Rating: In the Middle
