Storyline

Susan Tuttle, Wilga Roberts, Patricia Roberts and their pal Kenny are train surfers. Extreme to the core, their harrowing experiences on top of a train would scare the hell out of any 15 year old. Their ride comes to the end of the line, like so many real train surfers when one of them (Patricia) is impaled on a water pipe. The others make a pact to do something good for the planet in her name or come back and ride the train again in 15 years to their death. 15 years later Susan and Kenny have forgotten about the pact but not Wilga, he has spent his time in prisons and mental wards waiting for this moment, to honor his dead sister. Now 15 years later, he's come to collect on the Pact. Wila murders Susan's boyfriend and kidnaps her daughter to blackmail her into riding with him one last time to the end of the line.

scary thriller with a beautiful woman
7 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

About twenty years ago, Steven Spielberg said that Sigrid Thornton was the most beautiful woman in the world. She still is! I was mesmerized by her looks in The Pact. She's now in her early forties but she still has those fantastic eyes and great face. In The Pact she plays a mum on the run trying to protect her daughter. This film kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The guy chasing Sigrid and her daughter is one scary dude. He's played by Robert Mammone who by the way is a member of Russel Crowe's band 30 Odd Foot of Grunt. Robert and Russell met filming the "The Crossing" about 15 years ago which movie trivia buffs will know was also the same film that starred Russell's now wife Danielle Spencer! Anyway, The Pact is a well made film with great performances and some lovely scenery, especially in the farm scenes. But be warned. It's scary!
