A WOMAN’S NIGHTMARES ABOUT A SERIAL KILLER START TO CREEP INTO HER WAKING LIFE IN THE SEQUEL TO THE RUNAWAY HIT
Only a few weeks after Annie Barlow exterminated the plague that was the Judas Killer in The Pact, we meet June Abbott (Camilla Luddington, Grey’s Anatomy, True Blood), a woman whose carefully constructed life in Los Angeles is beginning to unravel due to lucid nightmares so awful they disturb her waking life. When FBI Special Agent Terrence Ballard shows up at June’s door, he brings some terrifying news – there is a Judas copycat killer on the loose in her neighborhood! In the course of his investigation, Ballard shows June a picture of the copycat’s victim, and she is stunned to see that it’s the same woman she saw brutally murdered in her nightmares.
A series of hauntings begin to torment June. Now, not only does she see murder victims, her dreams put her in the role of the murderer. June fears that the spirit of the Judas Killer is the architect of some greater plan in which she must now play a part. June struggles to maintain her grip on sanity as she plunges into her own investigation of these events. No matter the result, the truth will be horrifying; either there is true evil inside of her, or someone, or something, is determined to destroy her.
THE PACT 2 also stars Caity Lotz (Mad Men, The Machine, The Pact) and Patrick Fischler (Mulholland Drive, Silicon Valley). The film is from the producers of The Pact, The Divide and Mr. Jones. It was written and directed by Dallas Richard Hallam and Patrick Horvath (Entrance).
Bilge Ebiri of New York magazine called THE PACT 2 “terrifying” and said the film “might actually make you afraid to turn out the lights ever again.” Andy Webster of The New York Times said, “The directors, Dallas Hallam and Patrick Horvath, are fluent in the genre’s staples.”
