I didn't realize that mental hospitals were filled with hot chicks. I should really visit them more often. Granted, even a nutbar Amber Heard is probably out of my league. However, there's that chick that keeps sucking her thumb while clutching her bunny rabbit doll. I bet I could sneak up to her barred window at night and whisper "psst! I got an extra ticket to see Tori Amos tonight! Come on, I'll help you break out!". She'd be cracked puddy in my hands.
Other than that, the plot of The Ward is modern day Hollywood horror hackery, albeit competent hackery. Where the movie shines is in the direction by John Carpenter. This one actually looks and feels like a John Carpenter movie, unlike the Masters of Horror episodes he did. So...it's decent, I guess. Maybe someone will let Carpenter direct an original, interesting script (or maybe he can write his own).
