TERRIFYING IMAGES, POSTER, AND TRAILER FOR ‘THE PACT’ EMERGE

the-pact

So far the IFC Midnight films have been up and down. Some films have achieved cult status like the Human Centipede sequences while some that were great fell under the radar like I Sell The Dead. Still turning them out despite the criticism of reviewers like myself, it looks like next up for the company is the movie directed by Nicholas McCarthy, The Pact. This tension filled supernatural film looks like it’s worth a view. Don’t just take my word for it, check out some new haunting images and the trailer for The Pact.

Set to be released on July 6th with a limited theatrical run (why it’s not larger, I have no idea) and a release on the video on demand circuit starting May 25th, The Pact involves two sisters returning to their childhood home and finding some unwanted things still lingering around. From what I can see from the trailer and some reviews from the festival circuit, is that it looks like a rush. I hope this film does well and gets picked up by more theaters because it’s a classic tale of creepy family history that in my opinion never gets old!

Synopsis:

”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.”

    Also, when you say IFC Midnight has been ‘up and down’ are you referring to popularity of the movies alone, or whether or not the movies are any good. If you are a critic, I would presume you are referring to whether or not the movies are any good; yet you just say ‘cult status versus under the radar’.

    I don’t know what you have criticized regarding their films, I haven’t read any other of your reviews mostly for fear my IQ will drop 30 points after reading this elementary shit sack post, but are you seriously reviewing a movie from a fucking TRAILER? Then you end your ‘review’ of the trailer with this sentence: hope this film does well and gets picked up by more theaters because it’s a classic tale of creepy family history that in my opinion never gets old! SERIOUSLY? Why do you hope it does well or gets picked up by more theaters, you haven’t even seen it! What makes you say it’s a ‘classic’ tale? ಠ_ಠ

    Like you said before, ‘why it wasn’t released to a larger theater audience YOU HAVE NO IDEA'; and that is obvious, so why are you showing how stupid you are by making comments about things you have no knowledge of.

    IFC Midnight has DISTRIBUTED some outstanding horror movies, amongst others, but why are you referring to this movie as an IFC film anyway? They are merely the DISTRIBUTORS and not the only ones connected to a film.

    The Pact:

    Entertainment One (2012) (UK) (theatrical)IFC Midnight (2012) (USA) (theatrical)20th Century Fox Home Entertainment (2012) (Australia) (DVD)Ascot Elite Entertainment Group (2012) (Germany) (all media)ContentFilm International (2011) (Non-USA) (all media)
    Here’s your review in summary:

    IFC Midnight films has some popular movies and some weren’t so popular. I watched a trailer and I think THIS movie is good. Since I think it’s good, more movie theaters should show it. The end.

    Oh, and here, I think I found your grocery list.

    wrong:Still turning them out despite the criticism of reviewers like myself…..

    correct:
    Still turning them out despite the criticism of reviewers like me…

    Myself is a reflexive or stressed pronoun, which means it should be used in conjunction with the subject pronoun IIN CONJUNCTION WITH the subject pronoun ►► I The word ‘I’ will always been seen prior to the usage of the word MYSELF.
    As in:
    I bought myself a car.I myself started the company.I did the laundry by myself.I feel like myself again.Tired of waiting, I just did it myself.
    I am sick and disgusted by today’s stupid and lazy generation who is so worried about whether they should say me or I that nobody even uses the word ME anymore, instead saying MYSELF because they think it’s fancy and allows them to avoid the ME versus I ‘conundrum’ which, if you are a WRITER, should not be a conundrum at all. There are simple and steadfast rules on when to use I or me, if you would only take the time to read them.
    Myself can be used for stress, but grammarians don’t allow it to be used alone – constructions like “Carol wants to meet with John and myself” (correct: with John and me”) and “The book was written entirely by myself” (correct: by me personally) (or you could say “I wrote the book entirely myself”).
    Myself can be reflexive (I’m doing something to/for myself) or emphatic (I myself).
    Otherwise, THE CORRECT FUCKING WORD IS ME.
