Content Film in ‘Pact’ for sequel

Helmer-scribe duo will continue McCarthy's chiller

Horror film “The Pact” is set for a sequel, which Content Film will present to buyers at the European Film Market.

The Pact 2” will be scripted and helmed by Dallas Hallam and Patrick Horvath, whose debut, “Entrance,” premiered at the L.A. Film Festival in 2011.

“When I saw Dallas and Patrick’s first feature I recognized that these guys were extremely talented and shared a real love and respect for horror,” said Nicholas McCarthy, who helmed and scripted the first film, based on his own short of the same title.

The sequel picks up a few weeks after the events of the original, following a woman whose carefully constructed life begins to unravel due to nightmares that disturb her waking life.

“The Pact 2” will again be produced by Ross M. Dinerstein of Preferred Films and TV, and executive produced by McCarthy and Content’s Jamie Carmichael. Content and Preferred Films will jointly sell North American rights with Content handling international sales.
