This picture reminded me of Girl Interrupted but in a horror version. Well acted but the characters were not that interesting since it lacked character development. Purpose of the killings, history of the institution and some dragging scenes were evident. Had some nice camera angles to build-up the ghost, but yet nothing too enthralling. The Ward is not one of the good films in its genre, but it may scare you because of the decent direction.

I've seen this before, and seen it done better - I'll stick with Identity as I could predict the outcome easily and the only scares to be had were of the "jump out at you" variety - the story was not a draw. Even the asylum setting just wasn't creepy enough for me.

Has some of the right stuff, but it's too much of a mixed bag. Parts of the plot feel similar to Shutter Island, especially the ending revelation. Not Carpenter's best, or worst.
