Marty's Review of The Pact
Disappointing when considering the concept. It could have been much better. I often judge a horror or suspense movie by whether or not the musical score, or in this case, sounds, are really necessary to make the film chilling or dramatic edge of seat stuff. In this case, it appears to me that without the sound there would be nothing, zilch, nada. Still, it helped kill an hour and a half after going to see my mum. The Docudrama from Discovery, "Haunting in Connecticut" was much better by miles and for far less production costs most probably. I can't fault the acting. It's just that it could and should have been so much better. Nicholas McCarthy wants to take up some other career if this is anything to go by. If he had got some other person in to direct his story, then it might have been a much more worthwhile experience.
