A film that has been kept a relatively low profile so far is The Pact, which made its debut at Sundance last night and will be playing at the fest over the next week. The low profile, I imagine, is to generate mystery. Very few photos have been released and no clips have been revealed, until now.
Inside, we have the first teaser for the film, directed by Nicholas McCarthy.
Here, McCarthy has expanded his short into a feature length film starring Caity Lotz, Casper Van Dien, Haley Hudson, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Sam Ball and Agnes Bruckner.
After their mother passes away, sisters Nicole and Annie reluctantly return to their childhood home to pay their last respects. While staying overnight in the house, the sisters sense a mysterious presence in their midst: noises startling them in the night, objects moving about, a fallen picture of an unknown woman posed next to their mother. Annie begins experiencing a series of intense and disturbing dreams – visions that lead her to uncover something terrible about her mother’s past that is finally revealing itself.
