Yet another genre film has scored distribution at this year’s Sundance Film Festival as news has just broken that IFC Midnight has taken the rights for The Pact (review here)!
According to THR, IFC Midnight will give The Pact a pre-theatrical video-on-demand release, followed by a 12-city theatrical run.
IFC Midnight beat out Anchor Bay Entertainment to acquire the film by writer-director Nicholas McCarthy. The Pact centers on a woman who returns home to attend her mother’s funeral only to feel something strange and unsettling in the house she grew up in. Caity Lotz and Casper Van Dien star.
The project, which had its world premiere last Friday at the Egyptian Theatre, is based on a short film McCarthy screened at the 2011 Sundance fest.
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 anddisturbing dreams – visions that lead her to uncover something terrible about her mother’s past that is finally revealing itself.
