Passable drama has great dancers but no originality.
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.
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.
The Pact, starring Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), is a powerful story about a supposed "suicide pact" between two teens that goes terribly awry. When only one of the children dies, both sets of parents must look at their friendship, loss, and guilt as they try to figure out the truth about the fateful night.
"It makes the season finale we did last year look like a student film."
