Director Nicholas McCarthy Ties Up Loose Ends On ‘The Pact’

    That actually helps quite a bit. I really loved the movie, the atmosphere and the creepy Carpenter-esque music drove the mood home. Also the movements of the Judas Killer were creepy as hell too.

      Right? Fucking creepy. The shot of the closet alone, and I’d swallow. Not too many films pull that off.

    Good information. I’ve watched this film twice. We had decided that the Judas killer must be the father. I admit that, like many other apparently, got the ending wrong… didn’t figure it for a dream. Anyway, I thought The Pact was scary as all get up, kudos to the filmmaker.

      I’m glad to have access to a great group of horror minds on Facebook, and we all loved the movie, but were frustrated because we couldn’t figure out the obscure. It seems simple once he explains it, but before he did, I was reaching in the dark. It kind of relieves me that he was so forthcoming with the answers and candid about the fact that he knew that most people weren’t picking up what he was hinting at.

      And I didnt know it was a dream either. I thought she moved to a new house.

    I pretty much assumed the ending was a dream because we see Annie fall asleep and listen to her breathing all throughout that final scene. The fact that Judas was her father wasn’t as clear, I just thought it was something in the family and he was her uncle. Some theories I’ve read since watching it guess that Jennifer Glick was her mother and Judas was her father, which makes sense because of the photo of Glick pregnant. Her mother is really her aunt and her sister is really her cousin. The scariest thing to consider after watching it is that the mother locked her children in the closet knowing that her brother could get to them.

    Thanks for asking those questions… answered everything I wanted to know. However, I can’t stand when content that is cut out is still relevant in the final cut. Still creepy.

    I came here to figure out why it’s called The Pact. I really love the title and that you kind of have to think about these different elements of the film deeply to get it.
