Official synopsis surfaces for The Pact 2

By now it should be no secret that I loved the shit out of The Pact, a creepy little movie that demands attention and multiple viewings . . . because it's shorts shitting entertainment at its finest.

The Basement revealed a few weeks back that a sequel is in the works. And while I was initially excited for writer Dallas Hallam and director Patrick Horvath's follow up, the synopsis leaves me a little cold. Read on:

Only a few weeks after Annie Barlow exterminated the plague that was the Judas Killer, we meet June, 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 Special Agent Kevin Dickey, the FBI agent assigned to wrap up the case of the newly deceased Judas Killer shows up at June’s door, he brings with him some terrifying news – there is a Judas copycat killer on the loose in her neighborhood! In the course of his investigation, Dickey shows June a picture of the copycat killer’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, growing in frequency and ferocity over time. Now, not only does she see murder victims, but her dreams put herself 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… IT’S NOT OVER.

I don't know about you, but meh. Sure, it's trying to continue the plot of the original, but The Pact 2 sounds like a cheap knock off at the same time. I'll reserve judgement until some footage surfaces, but I'm certainly less keen for this flick than I was before.

The Pact 2 films this spring.
