Since it has an awesome poster, we assumed that The Pact would suck, because that generally tends to be the rule... but my oh my, how we were wrong.
This is easily the creepiest movie of 2012 so far, and by far.
Also, Caity Lotz is one of the cutest chicks of 2012. Or any year, really.
|She had pokies going on throughout the entire movie.|
|That is NOT the front door.|
|When the creepy, blind seer says it's time to go, then it's time to go!|
For the record, the entire cast did a great job here, but Caity Lotz carried this baby on her back. She may have played it a bit over dramatic here and there, but for the most part she felt real, and made us feel for her. The part where she uses the Ouija Board -and her reaction to her first answer- illustrates it perfectly; it was genuine and exactly what most people would have done if that had been them.
|At the point where the upside-down crucifix abruptly slides across the hand-made Ouija Board on the floor, I'm out of there.|
*BEWARE- This section do be spoiler-ish*. We would like to have a few of the movie's more ambiguous plot elements cleared up for us. For instance, what exactly was this pact that gives the movie it's title, and who was it between? We have a pretty good idea what it involved (siblings and silence) but it could have been something else as well. Also, was the brother a ghost or alive. The answer is most likely alive, but there were things that happened that could definitely be proof of him being a spirit of some sort. Also, was he Uncle and Daddy? And what was with the end? Just a dream or was there something more to it? None of these questions spoiled the movie for us at all, but we just hate not knowing for sure. We're selfish like that.
|We're not sure either, Caity.|
Caity Lotz running around in a tight tank top and boy shirts, which pleased us none the less. There was so much cleavage going on throughout this thing, that we sometimes found ourselves forgetting what just happened plot-wise. We didn't mind rewinding though.
|She even rides her motorcycle in her undies. Now that's class.|
|It was kinda like she was doing a crazy ballet or an energy charged Flashdance.|
Agnes Bruckner in a movie, and it felt good. As for Caity Lotz, well she gets her own special little post below... *Click her banners below to see more of her, each one goes to a different post.
