The Pact is a film for those who like thrillers with elements of horror. Acting and screenplay are on solid level. The people in charge of the sound are done quite a nice job.
The acting is solid and the behavior of the leading actress in the film is what everyone expected from a person who found herself in that situation. It has a good story, contains a lot of creepy scenes and above all keeps attention the viewer throughout the whole duration.
This is the first film from writer-director Nicholas McCarthy who is in 2011 made a short film with the same title. It make a good choice when he’s decides to record full version.
