Hi-Noon: Local Horror Film Surfaces

John Carpenter's horror flick, “The Ward,” which was filmed in Medical Lake and Spokane, became available through various cable on-demand services today. It stars Amber Heard as a woman in a mental institution. And guess what? This mental institution is not what it seems. This movie has not exactly received stellar  reviews, but so far it has been treated more kindly than many other locally filmed movies. It has a 48 percent positive score among reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes. The Guardian, a British paper, called it a “well-made film, with some finely crafted shocks and a steady pace that almost seems stately in these days of fast-cut horror”/Jim Kershner, SR. More here.

Question: Which horror movie is your favorite?
