Nice to see something a little different I have not watched The Ward.

Maybe maybe not you will have to wait until later

Possibly my most inaccurate Top 10 posted so far in as much as I may have missed a load that otherwise would have been there; Damn you Dem!!
I know what you mean. I too found it difficult. Confusing as well. It was a category that could easily have been broken up. I was also torn between the films and the stories themselves therefore there are discrepancies between the ranking of this list and my top ten films of all time.

The Fog
Prince of Darkness
Halloween
Escape From New York
The Thing
Christine
Starman
Ghosts of Mars
In the Mouth of Madness
The Ward

Just because Assault on Precinct 13 and Big Trouble in Little China, not to mention They Live, aren't on the list doesn't mean i don't rate them. I do, i think all three are brilliant. Carpenter is my fave genre director by a long way and my ranking after the top 5 which remains constant, changes with viewing.

I'm not the only one who's listed The Ward.

Perhaps, just this once you not liking it doesn't mean it's not very good.

I didn't quote you did I - it was a general statement to all who chose to list it.

However, when The Ward appears in a top Carpenter list and there is no sign of Assault on Precinct 13, all I can say is:

Lock up before you go won't you. And don't forget your toothbrush!

Now to make you head for another galaxy.

I might actually prefer the remake of Assault. It's more of an action film and a lot more fun. Again i've never said i don't like Assault because i do. If i watched it tonight i'm sure it would get in the top 10 (6 or 7) if i did the list tomorrow. However it's Top Ten Tuesday so i haven't and it didn't.

Oh and Rio Bravo is far better than Assault. I'm sure even JC would admit that.

Rio Bravo is a solid film, although I much prefer Assault personally.

Ghosts of Mars makes for a nice Assault remake too.
