Andrea Graves inherits her grandmother’s nineteenth century beachfront house. Referred to by the locals as the “Charnel House”, she soon finds that this seemingly innocuous homestead hides a cavalcade of ominous and spectral secrets. Andrea discovers a haunted mirror which seems to act as a portal to the afterworld and soon, the ghosts of the past begin to haunt her in the present. As the undead begin to lay siege upon the house, her only hope for salvation is to surrender to the spirits and fulfill The Pact!

Shot on the scenic shores of Virginia Beach in 1995, The Pact marked an early directorial effort from prolific SOV filmmaker Brad Sykes (Camp Blood, Death Factory, Plaguers). Scarcely seen and distributed since its initial completion, The Pact presents a micro-budget meditation on the dreamy Eurocult sleaze epics of ‘70s crossed with the supernatural shorefront stylings of The Slayer and Blood Beach.
