The Pact

type
  • Movie

In and out of theaters this past summer before it could raise many goose bumps, Nicholas McCarthy’s taut little chiller The Pact (2012, 1 hr., 31 mins., Not Rated) deserves a second look now that it’s available on VOD, Amazon Instant Video, and iTunes. Renée Zellweger look-alike Caity Lotz (Mad Men) plays a woman who moves into her late mother’s doily-festooned home (big mistake) and is soon being thrashed around by supernatural forces that want her to know about its bloody past. The Pact favors slow-build scares over gore, but it has a handful of moments that will make you check under your bed before going to sleep. B+
