Critic Reviews

While by no means a masterpiece of the form, John Carpenter's The Ward is an economical period piece that still effectively demonstrates what a skilled technician can accomplish in a single location with a compact cast and sturdy old-school effects.
— Michael Rechtshaffen (The Hollywood Reporter)
Didn't Like
Lacking a single serious scare or sly idea, the movie dies in ways that merely mediocre horror films can't even dream of.
— Joshua Rothkopf (Time Out)
