Annie arrives to discover that her ster Nicole (Agnes Bruckner, Blue Car, The Craigslist Killer, Dreamland), who also had returned after the death, has disappeared. While staying overnight in the empty house, Annie senses a mysterious and nister presence: noises awaken her and objects seem to move by themselves, among other unexplainable events. With a detective (Casper Van Dien of Starship Troopers) and a clairvoyant (Haley Hudson of Weeds) helping her investigate the phycal and paranormal clues, Annie starts to suspect that something terrible has happened in the house. What she discovers leads her on a dangerous journey into her mother's unknown and disturbing past.
Gripping and terrifying, THE PACT instantly makes debuting writer-director Nicholas McCarthy a name of note in the modern horror field.
The Los Angeles Times' Mark Olsen called the film "weird, fantastical and sort of reasonable" and said it maintains its "sense of grounded directness up to the very end." Kyle Smith of the New York Post said its "moments of unexpected special effects are set up beautifully by long periods of suspense." The New York Times' Manohla Dargis said the movie "sends a nice shiver up your spine."
