"The Pact 2 is set just weeks after Annie Barlow's deadly confrontation with the Judas Killer. In this elevated sequel, we meet June, a woman whose carefully constructed life is beginning to unravel due to lucid nightmares so awful they disturb her waking life."
Via IFC Midnight, The Pact 2 will be hitting VOD this September 5th, and will be following up with a theatrical run October 10th.
I loved the original film from 2012, and I clearly remember watching Sinister with commentary by director Scott Derrickson, and he also said that he is a fan. Since I respect Derrickson, I found it to be cool that even he watches and likes low-budget indie movies. It's a film that a lot of people haven't heard of, but I never heard a bad word about it from those who have seen it. I don't know how I feel about the director of the first film not being involved with this one, but there's a good cast on board with Camilla Luddington (HBO's True Blood) and Patrick Fischler (Twister), so I'll remain optimistic. Also, Haley Hudson, Mark Steger, and Caity Lotz are back to reprise their roles from the original flick, so that's a plus.
