The Pact 2: Press Release -- "The suspenseful action picks up right where it left off in the sequel THE PACT 2, the story of a young woman who comes to believe a dead killer is after her. The IFC Midnight theatrical release will unsettle home viewers when it is released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 7, 2015.

Only a few weeks after Annie Barlow exterminated the plague that was the Judas Killer in The Pact, we meet June Abbott (Camilla Luddington, Grey's Anatomy, True Blood), a woman whose carefully constructed life in Los Angeles is beginning to unravel due to lucid nightmares so awful they disturb her waking life. When FBI Special Agent Terrence Ballard shows up at June's door, he brings some terrifying news - there is a Judas copycat killer on the loose in her neighborhood! In the course of his investigation, Ballard shows June a picture of the copycat's victim, and she is stunned to see that it's the same woman she saw brutally murdered in her nightmares.

A series of hauntings begin to torment June. Now, not only does she see murder victims, her dreams put her in the role of the murderer. June fears that the spirit of the Judas Killer is the architect of some greater plan in which she must now play a part. June struggles to maintain her grip on sanity as she plunges into her own investigation of these events. No matter the result, the truth will be horrifying; either there is true evil inside of her, or someone, or something, is determined to destroy her.

THE PACT 2 also stars Caity Lotz (Mad Men, The Machine, The Pact) and Patrick Fischler (Mulholland Drive, Silicon Valley). The film is from the producers of The Pact, The Divide and Mr. Jones. It was written and directed by Dallas Richard Hallam and Patrick Horvath (Entrance)."


Z-Girl and the 4 Tigers Figure: Phicen Limited and Executive Replicas have teamed up to produce a 1/6th-scale Z-Girl action figure that is 12 inches tall. This item can be pre-ordered and will be available by the end of June. A list of the figure's accessories and costume details are below:

"Discovered in the Mongolian desert in the 3rd century BC by the father of Taoism, Lao Tzu, Z-Girl is a highly functioning zombie with both a consciousness and a conscience.

A fierce warrior, for several centuries she has led the four Tigers, human hosts of ancient Chinese warrior spirits, into battle against monsters and demons that threaten to wipe out humanity. While Tigers have died over the centuries and their spirits gone to inhabit new hosts, Z-Girl has survived and endured. The tattoos on her shoulders are shared with her teammates, allowing them to find each other through Tao and reunite after they have been separated.

Regenerative mists and herbs found at the peak of China’s Mount Huashan enable Z-Girl to keep her innate zombie hunger for flesh at bay, but the effect is only temporary. Though she has willingly put herself in harm’s way many times in order to protect humanity, she knows that deep down, she is still a zombie and until the end of her days must always be on guard against her urges.


Z-Girl is humanity’s last hope against extinction.
