The Nth Ward is a chilling suspense thriller about a woman haunted by the childhood disappearance of her parents. Madison, now an engineer with the US Army Corps, and Kitch, a local contractor, are two conflicting personalities paired in a government program to assess the ongoing devastation of the Ninth Ward from the hurricane that savaged New Orleans a decade before. Efforts to rebuild have been thwarted. Bizarre happenings and disappearances lead them to believe that some darker force is at work.
When she seeks out the mysterious woman whose house stood unscathed in the eye of the storm, Madison’s own personal mystery engulfs her. Her relentless pursuit of truth threatens Kitch’s dearest aspiration and their very lives and livelihoods. Madison must look beyond the natural, the scientific. Is it witchcraft or a clandestine government plan? Can she and Kitch unmask the ward’s secret before it consumes them?
Why we’re looking forward to this: The trailer for The Nth Ward hints at a dark, supernatural mystery set in the always fascinating setting of New Orleans, home of voodoo and all manner of spooky goings on.
Starring Juliette Bennett, James Harvey Ward, and Charles Black, The Nth Ward is director Camille Brown’s first full length feature and is looking like it could be a potent mix of suspense, scares and supernatural shenanigans.
The Nth Ward has no release date yet but looks likely to be out early next year.
