It has been 10 long years, but, finally, John Carpenter is back. The director of such classics as Halloween, Escape From New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, and They Live, has returned with a brand new horror project entitled The Ward, his first film since John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars in 2001.

The Ward centers on a troubled young woman named Kristen (Amber Heard), who is placed in a mental institution after a traumatic event which she has no recollection of. Shortly after meeting the other four young women of The Ward (Danielle Panabaker, Lyndsy Fonseca, Mamie Gummer, Laura-Leigh) and Dr. Stringer (Jared Harris), certain things don't add up, and Kristen realizes she is not safe in The Ward.

I recently spoke with star Amber Heard and director John Carpenter about their new horror tale The Ward, which will be available on VOD formats starting June 8, in advance of its theatrical release on July 8. Click on the video player below to see what they had to say about their trip to The Ward.

The Ward will be released on VOD June 8, before its theatrical release on July 8.
