It bugs the hell out of me that the familiar open the bathroom cabinet and close it to see someone stood behind you still works, but for some God forsaken reason it still does.
The first clip from The Pact 2 uses the age old mirror scare scene, and it is certainly not the best mirror scare I have ever seen, but I guess it kinda works. You’ll find the clip below, along with the films much more effective full length trailer which was released a few months ago.
IFC Midnight picked up US theatrical rights to THE PACT 2, the sequel to the box office hit THE PACT, written and directed by Dallas Hallam and Patrick Horvath.

IFC Midnight acquired and released THE PACT after it premiered in Sundance in 2012. THE PACT 2 is a truly terrifying new film set just weeks after Annie Barlow’s deadly confrontation with the Judas Killer. In this elevated sequel, we meet June, a woman whose carefully constructed life is beginning to unravel due to lucid nightmares so awful they disturb her waking life.
The Pact 2 will be released in UK cinemas on 14th November.
Only a few weeks after Annie Barlow exterminated the plague that was the Judas Killer, we meet June Abbott, a woman whose carefully constructed life in Los Angeles is beginning to unravel due to lucid nightmares so awful they disturb her waking life. When Special Agent Terrence Ballard, the FBI agent assigned to wrap up the case of the newly deceased Judas Killer, shows up at June’s door, he brings with him some terrifying news – there is a Judas copycat killer on the loose in her neighborhood! In the course of his investigation, Ballard shows June a picture of the copycat killer’s victim, and she is stunned to see that it’s the same woman she saw brutally murdered in her nightmares.
A series of hauntings begin to torment June, growing in frequency and ferocity over time. Now, not only does she see murder victims, but her dreams put herself in the role of the murderer. June fears that the spirit of the Judas Killer is the architect of some greater plan in which she must now play a part. June struggles to maintain her grip on sanity as she plunges into her own investigation of these events. No matter the result, the truth will be horrifying; either there is true evil inside of her, or someone, or something, is determined to destroy her…
