The Pact

Release Year: 2012

Director: Nicholas McCarthy

Starring: Caity Lotz, Casper Van Dien, Mark Steger

Nicole returns to the house she grew up in after the death of her mother. Nicole’s sister Annie shows up to help with funeral arrangements despite not being close with her mother. Nicole tries to contact her cousin who is taking care of her daughter, but after the video call fails, events happen to result in Nicole’s disappearance.

The Pact has a lot of twists and turns along the way as Annie investigates her sister’s disappearance. Supernatural activity is abundant in this film, a theme that really works within the plot. Annie discovers more than she bargained for and eventually has to fight for her life.

Director Nicholas McCarthy’s film was successful enough that a sequel followed called The Pact 2 though McCarthy, unfortunately, did not return to direct. The Pact is a genuinely scary movie that was well written and a movie I’ve watched on more than one occasion.
