Horror returns in “Devil’s Pact” when a woman finds herself plagued by recurring nightmares involving a serial killer only to realize that her dreams are for real.
Directed and written Dallas Richard Hallam and Patrick Horvath, “Devil’s Pact” follows the highly successful “The Pact” and sees a new female protagonist fighting for her life and the lives around her – June Abbot (played by Camilla Luddington), a woman whose carefully constructed life in Los Angeles is beginning to unravel due to lucid nightmares so awful they disturb her waking life. The film takes flight weeks after Annie Barlow’s (from The Pact) confrontation with the Judas Killer from the first film.”
June Abbot is a freelance crime-scene cleaner and aspiring horror illustrator in “Devil’s Pact” where she was assigned at the horrific murder of erotic model Ellie Ford (Suziey Block) where after a while, June begins to experience terrifying waking visions of the crime, but hides her unease from her boyfriend Daniel (Scott Michael Foster), a straight-arrow police officer.
FBI agent Ballard (Patrick Fischler), who’s recently wrapped up the case of the prolific “Judas Killer,” reveals that June’s mother was one of his original victims and now Ballard believes that the copycat murderer who decapitated Ford is targeting June. As her terrifying visions of Ford’s death intensify, strange noises and ghostly late-night visitations indicate that June’s LA home may be infested with an evil presence. The reappearance of Annie Barlow (Lotz), the young woman who previously dispatched the Judas Killer in self-defense, contributes to June’s growing suspicion that Ballard’s theory may actually be correct, as she senses a threatening presence closing in on her that neither the FBI agent nor Daniel can protect her from.
Catch the horrifying dreams turned real when “Devil’s Pact” opens November 12 in theaters from Axinite Digicinema.
