The Pact Reviews

July 12, 2012
The explanations for what has been going on are weird, fantastical and sort of reasonable, within the context of the story, maintaining the film's sense of grounded directness up to the very end.

McCarthy is clearly an economical director and what he gets on screen here - while hardly new - is still effective and occasionally creepy.

A tightly controlled low-budget chiller whose occasional moments of unexpected special effects are set up beautifully by long periods of suspense.

In the end, like a lot of genre movies, this one pulls from different inspirations, and so weighs in, by turns, as overly predictable and satisfyingly recognizable (part of genre cinema's one-two punch).

In truth, there's nothing here we haven't seen before. But McCarthy, who also wrote the straightforward script, keeps the pace moving and the atmosphere eerie (if rarely terrifying).

More horror movies set in the 21st century ought to integrate technology into their scares as well as Nicholas McCarthy's The Pact.

There's no pact in The Pact, which is indicative of this faux spooky tale's guiding illogicality.
June 6, 2012
This haunted house movie achieves a frightening intensity with limited means, but also feels under-characterised and overstretched.

Basic, efficient little horror item scares up a few little shocks, possibly enough for a modest commercial career.
