After an extremely successful festival run, Tarantula Entertainment is delighted to announce the release of The Pact, for purchase on Create Space and on May 11, 2013. The release will be in conjunction with its final festival screening at the Northern Voyage Film Festival, Brookings, SD.

Shot on location in Brookings, South Dakota, The Pact is a smart comedy about two brothers who swear off women for a year. Their pact holds them under an almost magical spell as they take turns trying but failing to break it.

The film won Best Feature & People's Choice at The Wet Your Pants Comedy Film Festival, Best of Fest at The South Dakota Film Festival, Audience Favorite at The Black Hills Film Festival, Best Feature at The American International Film Festival (Dec. 2011), Best Comedy at The New Hope Film Festival, Best Ensemble Cast at the Best Actors in a Film Festival and the Bronze Palm at The Mexico International Film Festival. One of the film’s stars, Jordan Toronto, won best actress at the NYC Independent Film festival. The Pact was an official selection at the Philadelphia Independent, Hoboken International, Buffalo Niagara and a dozen other festivals. Written and produced by the Toronto brothers, The Pact story is based on a real pact the Toronto brothers made in their college years.

Matthew, a professor of theater at Penn State University and Aaron, a counselor residing in Brookings, SD have made several award winning shorts. This is their first feature.
