“Based on Nicholas McCarthy’s acclaimed spine-chilling Sundance 2011 short, and from the Producer of Xavier Gens’ SXSW sensation THE DIVIDE, comes a terrifying ghost story in the classic horror tradition of Hitchcock’s PSYCHO, Argento’s SUSPIRIA and Nakata’s RINGU…

When their mother dies, sisters Annie and Nicole finally begin to face their disturbing childhood, and the time they spent locked in the ‘punishment room.’ Soon Nicole visits her mother’s house to deal with the estate and spend the night — and mysteriously vanishes. Annie reluctantly returns home and begins rooting through her mother’s belongings for answers, happening upon a picture of her mother standing beside an unknown young woman, and feeling an eerie presence…

Soon their cousin Liz, charged with caring for Nicole’s infant daughter Eva, joins Annie in the house, and all seems relatively calm — until Liz too disappears in the middle of the night. Desperately searching the house for her, Annie suddenly feels a hand grip the back of her neck before being brutally attacked by a violent, unseen force. Escaping with Eva and scared for her life, Annie’s frantic search for clues continues while she begins to experience visions of a mysterious figure hunched over, head in hands, rocking…

Unfolding like an intensely atmospheric and horrifying nightmare, with an extraordinary twist that will shock and surprise even the most well versed of horror fans, THE PACT delves into secrets so sinister, so deeply unsettling, so downright scary, that audiences will experience the true meaning of fear right up to the final unforgettable frame.”

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
