The Pact

The Pact: “Scream out Scary,” “Twisted and terrifying,” “Nail-biting Suspense”… Try the opposite.
★★

The Pact follows a simple plot that takes a little while to get going and once it does, you realise you’ve probably seen this before. The development of the characters is poor at best and you can’t help but feel nothing for them and although their acting is above par in comparison to many of the horror films I’ve seen of late, it doesn’t make up for how bad the film turned out. The Pact manages to draw you in somewhat by reducing the amount of awful dialogue seen in other films, allowing the tension to build in the silence, but to call it a horror would be lying, for the weak story was absent of any scary moments and the story failed to deliver anything exciting apart from the end credits.

    Nice review, I didn’t really expect much from The Pact to be honest. The trailer wasn’t particularly inspiring! Glad I missed this one at the cinema !

  2. I reviewed this too and found it equally as rubbish.

  3. This film was just all kinds of crap. Glad you didn’t like it haha.

    Yeah, I agree, pretty disappointing; let me give you a much better recommendation. Try the spanish thriller “The Hidden Face” but as I advise on my blog entry DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER ahead of time b/c they give the twist away in the trailer! But it is really great and unpredictable. I have an “Obscure Recommendation” page on my blog with some horror suggestions; check it out if you get a chance. Nice review. Will be looking at others, as well. :)
