We’re always rooting for the indie filmmaker here at Dread Central, and it’s good to see a filmmaker release a short film that’s so well received that it gets turned into a feature with a big named cast.
According to Bloody Disgusting short film director Nicholas McCarthy will be making his feature film debut on The Pact, a full-length version of his short film that premiered at this past January’s Sundance Film Festival.
Caity Lotz (“Death Valley,” “Mad Men”), Agnes Bruckner (pictured right; Venom, Vacancy 2, The Woods, Kill Theory), Sam Ball (“The Event”), Haley Hudson (“Ghost Whisperer”, Killer Pad) and Kathleen Rose Perkins (“Lie to Me,” “Trust Me”) all star in the horror drama to be produced by The Divide and Frontier(s) director Xavier Gens.
“As a woman struggles to come to grips with her past in the wake of her mother’s death, an unsettling presence emerges in her childhood home.” The film is said to be classic horror in the tradition of Alfred Hitchcock’s’ Psycho, Dario Argento’s Suspiria and Hideo Nakata’s Ring.
Shooting is set to take place this week in Los Angeles.
