Stevie enters the house not feeling much but finds horror that she doesn't elaborate on but feels sorry for. In the end Annie learns of a dark family secret and finally learns to hold her own.
I was hoping this movie would be a haunted house movie that would scare me, unfortunately it didn't. The tricks it used have been used before in many movies, and the situations of Annie's past were not developed. In the movie the audience is told that she had some sort of bad childhood but it is never elaborated on so the audience never really understands why they should be sympathetic towards her. The situation in the "haunted" house is never fully explained either. No one really explains why the house is haunted or who is really haunting it, plus the big bad evil is not what was expected and it was a little cliche.
This story has been told before. I wanted a new ghost story. Also the title "the pact" I didn't understand why this movie was titled that. It wasn't referenced in the movie and there was no "pact" between any of the characters unless it was an unspoken pact that the audience was just supposed to accept.
I didn't care for this one. It didn't leave much to the imagination, nor did it scare me. It was just blah.
