The Ward

3/5. Cert: 15 RT: 108 mins

John Carpenter makes a long-overdue return to form in this fine horror offering that sees an arsonist trying to escape a mental institution that’s haunted by a ghost.

Amber Heard is a fine scream queen in The Ward and Carpenter shows he hasn’t lost the ability to make us jump out of our seats.

Good for: John Carpenter fans.
