A trailer has been released for legendary director John Carpenter’s latest work The Ward. The movie stars Amber Heard as a young woman on the run against truly insane forces. The film shares a lot of similarities with Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch but unfortunately, it doesn’t have a U.S. release date yet. We wonder why? Check out the trailer below…

The Ward centers on a young woman who is locked up in a mental institution after she supposedly set a house on fire. Once she’s checked in, she become haunted by what seems to be the ghost of a former patient. From that point on horror and jump scares ensue.

Are we the only ones who get a David Goyer - The Unborn vibe from this film? It looks very old school but the scares in it are generic and too premeditated for our taste. Nothing sticks out as interesting or unique.

The Ward is scheduled to open in U.K. theaters on January 21. We’re not sure when it will get a domestic release, but when we find out we’ll let you know.

What do you think of the trailer for The Ward? Are you interested in seeing the film?
