A Blood Pact with an evil fighting rooster.

A farmer named Victor (Julio Aldama) and his wife are struggling big time. They are on the verge of losing their ranch and are starving since they don't have much to eat. Victor, desperate & all, goes out to his godfather's ranch to ask him for help (borrow money, work, etc.). When the godfather (played by Eric Del Castillo) refuses to help Victor, he then realizes he could use Victor for something... something real sinister. You see, Don Rafael (Victor's godfather) made a Pacto Sangriento (aka "Blood Pact") with a local warlock back in the day and pretty soon that pact is going to end which means Don Rafael's soul will now belong to Satan (aka Don Rafael will die!).

Don Rafael not wanting to die since he's got it made (banging a young blonde, is wealthy, etc.), decides to use Victor as his replacement in the blood pact. So then, he gets Victor to fight his prized & evil rooster. In the blood pact, the evil rooster must win 7 fights and in the last one (the 8th), it will die along with the owner (which of course is now Victor). As the evil rooster wins the cockfights, it makes Victor popular & rich in the local cockfighting scene.. The cockfights are also getting him closer to death.. This evil rooster is not only slowing killing Victor, it's also killing anyone that fucks with it!

I had a pretty hard time getting through Pacto Sangriento at first because the VHS copy I have was a wreck! When I first put it on the VCR, the picture was wobbly, sound was fucked up, eventually the VCR rejected the tape. Turns out a small part inside the tape was causing these issues to happen. Eventually, I got around to fixing it and converted the tape unto a DVD-R so that way I won't have to deal with that fucked up/cursed tape ever again. 

So this movie being called Pacto Sangriento & all (derp), there is plenty of bloody kills and plenty of damn supernatural shit going on! The most memorable bloody scene of the movie is when the evil rooster forces Roberto Cañedo's character to shoot himself in the mouth. Once that old dude shoots himself in the mouth, a bunch of blood splatters out of him (of course). Now isn't that some fucked up shit?!?!?! Another memorable bloody scene is when the evil rooster kills an annoying guy by pecking him to death. This pecking death leaves a bloody mess. A really fucking bloody mess. The warlock in the movie is great. I don't know who plays him but he sure pulled off playing that over laughing, creepy, dirty, & weird warlock. I also digged his crib (a cave with a bunch of red candles).

Pacto Sangriento may be intriguing, but it is poorly made. The sound is fucked up at times (and here I am thinking it was the fucked up/cursed tape's fault!), the acting is not so great (not so great), and let's not forget the horrid singing of the hot blonde they call Susana... Oh boy... She fucking sucks so much. Clearly the actress playing Susana isn't the one singing the song "Me Engañaste Con Tu Mujer" but either way, the song is fucking stupid. The lyrics appear to be written by a 12 year old, the keyboard in the song is crap, and Susana's voice is ugly as sin. Not cute at all. Not sexy at all. It's just plain ugly. Shame on whoever sang Me Engañsaste Con Tu Mujer. Shame on you!!!

I really dig Pacto Sangriento. It's bloody fun and bloody cool. This one a real hidden gem so don't expect to see it on DVD or find the VHS tape so easily. You're gonna have to look high & low for it, get your hands dirty, & pray every night that you will find it somewhere. That's what I did... Sorta... Actually no, I just found it by accident. Cool, huh? 7/10.
