Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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).
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: Basic, efficient little horror item scares up a few little shocks, possibly enough for a modest commercial career.
Rotten: There's no pact in The Pact, which is indicative of this faux spooky tale's guiding illogicality.
Wait until it rents for $3.99!!
It's okay, mostly a serial killer flick. Wait until it rents for less- not worth almost $10.
Fresh and suspenseful.
Worth then rental fee for an actual "new" horror flick. Good production value, well-written, and really good directing and acting.
What appears to be a paranormal mystery winds up nothing more than a formula plot of spirits of the wrongfully dead seeking peace by way of leading our main character to their killer. The sets are incredibly dimly lit to the point of total blackout which adds nothing to the suspense or feel of the scene, it merely frustrates the viewer. The script itself could have been written on one side of a piece of notebook paper. This movie is neither scary nor suspenseful.....and certainly not worth renting
