The Pact

Synopsis: Nichole Barlow comes to San Pedro with her daughter Eva to attend the funeral of her mother. She calls her estranged sister Annie to help her to resolve pending businesses, but Annie is too traumatized with the bad treatment spent by their mother and does not want to return to their childhood home. Nichole convinces her sister to come and she arrives to the funeral. However, Nichole goes missing and Eva stays with Nichole's cousin Liz. When Liz also disappears, Annie claims that supernatural events happen in the house but she becomes the prime-suspect. The open-minded detective Bill Creek assumes the investigation and realizes that there is something weird in the house. Meanwhile Annie summons the medium Stevie believing that the ghost of her mother is responsible for the vanishing of Nichole and Liz. But the woman warns Annie that there is a great danger in the house. Annie decides to go further in her investigation and discovers dark secrets from the past of her family.

I... I think it's a beautiful thing.

Mmm. Oh, is it the same deep love

that made Nicole take off on her kid?

Annie. We don't know

what's happened to her.

Yes, we do.

We've seen this over and over again.

This is what we do in my family.

When times get tough, we take off.

My dad did it, whoever the hell he is,

and now Nicole's doing it.

Then why did you come back?

For Nicole. Because we're sisters.





Hey. Who's she?

That's Nicole Barlow's sister.

She's crazy.

I can't talk right now. Yeah, I'll call you later.

All right. Bye.

Annie, I'm... I'm Bill Creek.

I know you told your story

to a bunch of people,

but would you mind going over it with me.

Why do you want to know

what happened to me?

I know your sister.

She's been in and out of here

a bunch of times.

I don't need another person

telling me I'm crazy.

I used to smoke.

You know what I do now when I get the urge?

They told me your work as a waitress.

What else do you do?

What do you want to do?

I don't want to make friends.

You remind me of my daughter.

She's a little bit younger than you.

And you guys... you guys are a lot alike.

She's a real fucking bitch, too.

So, where is she?

Your daughter?

She's up in Seattle. With her mother.

It's a sad story.

Let's talk about why you're here.

You show up at 4:00 a.m.

Claiming what you claim.

They send some people over there

to check it out

because you refuse to go back.

I'm not going back to that house.

Your cousin's missing.

They find signs of a struggle.

So, Annie, let me ask you this.

What would any cop in the world begin

to suspect here?

Why are you talking to me exactly?

You came here looking for help.

Yeah. Well, I don't need your help.

So, you're just gonna take off?

Better not leave town.
