overall an ok watch
but there are definitely some good jolts to be had
Caity Lotz is really good in the movie playing the sister of another sister who goes missing and whose mother dies
she arrives to take care of her sister's daughter yet she's unaware of a malevolent presence that resides in the house she's in
there's a ghost involved and a bigger mystery surrounding some murder victims
a lower budget of a horror flick but it's handled pretty neatly in terms of suspense
the climax is where things get pretty intense

The mystery is compelling and holds the story together in an efficient way before the last twenty minutes (which are very tense), even though there is no pact to be seen (can a movie title get more generic and lazier than this?) and the direction is so annoyingly full of clichés.

Super creepy, suspenseful, scary

The Pact is a pretty good horror film, but seems to lose focus a few times. There are quite a few good scares and pretty tense and suspenseful scenes, but the film drags into some monotonous moments quickly after, and it really hurt the movie. The acting overall is pretty good, the one older cop dude is bland as shit though. Watch this film if you want to see a pretty good horror film, but don't want to get too scared

Even though The Pact's story is excellent, many aspects of this movie make it dull and uninteresting.

This movie is really bad. I mean mind-bendingly bad. When the blind girl serving as a frat house mascot turns out to be a medium who runs on juice boxes, and it's not a comedy, run away. If you don't, the scary bad man will eat all your pickles and butter. And then he'll wash it down with you Dr Pepper!! The horror!!!! Oh but make sure you get a teeny tiny ice cream with a teeny tiny spoon from the grizzled police dude. Don't wanna miss out on that. This movie is ridiculous, I do not understand how it has a fresh rating.

Honestly my real question, which was never answered, is this: why does the pickle man cry?

didn't really go anywhere. i liked seeing haley hudson as stevie though, i always thought she was so cute on weeds.

I was very impressed with this ghost story. It got going fairly early and really didn't let up. There are some very potent shocks and a very good resolution. The sole out-of-place element is the appearance of the impossibly good looking Van Dien as a small town detective.

All around a good movie. A little slow at times and confusing. But the lead actress puts in a solid performance.

A surprisingly good scare! Too many films masquerade as horrors, only to leave the viewer feeling cheated and dismayed. Whether they are filled with overused stereotypes, or they just simply don't scare... horror fans more often than not are left wishing they hadn't fallen for another deceptive trailer. Yet The Pact separates itself from the pack by creating a tense atmosphere, that delivers it's fair share of chills. The premise is believable given that this is a horror. And the movie succeeds based on the fact that you're not constantly shaking your head at the characters' choices/decisions. It may not go down as a horror classic, but it's definitely worth a watch if you're a horror fan looking for your next viewing.

I was surprised watching this movie. It's one of the scariest movies I've seen and has GREAT suspense.
December 28, 2015
quite interesting story idea yet it is slow at some parts and there is decent suspense in it to its a rare "win" for the horror genre

Salvo por esporádicos momentos ótimos da fotografia.

Ok, ok...after Crimson Peak every movie of the supernatural had good chances to be an improvement...but this was closer than thought...take an over-constructed story, paranormal activity, serial killers, mediums, Internet, street view and magical digital cams together and the Internet generation will understand it...that's probably what u think if u r grown up in these times...scares me a lot more of the movie still to come than the movie itself...by the way...most stupid "end boss" fight I have ever seen

Very boring thriller up until the end, but not entirely horrible
September 12, 2015
The pact is derivative and it's title doesn't mean a lot (there is no pact in the movie),but it holds together on it's own with enough chills, mystery and scares.

The protagonist absolutely makes the whole film.
