Yet another big film having its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival’s “Midnight Madness” is John Carpenter’s hotly anticipated The Ward, his big return to horror that stars both Amber Heard and Danielle Panabaker. Inside you’ll find the first two official images featuring Heard as a girl who is admitted to a psychiatric ward, meets other girls there with distinct personalities and discovers a mysterious girl haunting the halls at night.
“We are thrilled that The Ward has been accepted by the Toronto Film Festival,” A Bigger Boat Producer Peter Block tells Bloody-Disgusting. “Working with John Carpenter was such great experience — as a producer and as a fanboy. We set out to make a contained thriller that harkened back to some of John’s earliest masterpieces, and one that didn’t’ rely on special effects or over-the-top set pieces. John and the cast have turned in a movie that is worthy of the legendary John Carpenter name, and Colin Geddes and the whole Toronto team have given us the perfect platform for unveiling The Ward.”
