Did You Know?


After actor Tom Dallace delivers his lines in the "elevator sequence", a noticeably different voice is heard saying the line, "Hey, thanks a lot, man." The line was added in post production to fill in a moment of dead silence. Dallace was in Los Angeles shooting another movie and was unable to record the line himself, so an uncredited crew member dubbed the line instead. See more »


Several actors' hairstyles change several times throughout the movie. This is the result of a shooting schedule that took several years. See more »


Mike: [paying his drug dealer] Alright, man. I suppose the inevitable becomes quite evitable.

Not bad, not good
29 December 2001 | by (Madison, Wi) – See all my reviews

I don't get those who trash "Coven". It is a legit attempt at movie making, and while I can't rate very high due the fact there are many technical issues with this film and some issues with the script, it still is better than most low budget thrillers I have seen. I've seen worse acting in other low budget movies, and while not Oscar material, the acting for the most part doesn't hinder the movie in any way. No I can't do better, but rated against Orson Wells or Woody Allen this is okay at best. Rated against all the stuff he had go through to get this made and his lack of a budget it is a quite amazing piece of work. I'd like to see Mark with a real budget and real actors - the results can't be any worse those some stuff coming out of Hollywood already - and if he delivers on the promise he shows in this movie it would be at least entertaining.
