5 Things You Should Know About IFC Midnight’s THE PACT - On Demand Today Before In TheatersMay 25, 2012
THE PACT is available today (May 25th on VOD) a month before in theaters (July 6).
After her mother passes away, Annie is persuaded to return home and pay final respects. Sleeping in her childhood bedroom, something ominous and unfamiliar in the house rattles the tough-as-nails heroine. Enlisting the aid of a local cop and a clairvoyant to investigate, Annie soon finds these mysterious disturbances only serve as a catalyst to bring forth long-repressed nightmares that reveal a disturbing secret about her family's history.
An official selection of the Sundance Film Festival, THE PACT mixes genre elements to breathe new life into the classic haunted house genre. With an assured hand, director Nicholas McCarthy tactfully cranks up the tension and carefully peels away each twist to build toward a blood-tingling finale.
Here are ODW's 5 Things You Should Know About THE PACT
