To the students of the Spenser Academy, the Sons of Ipswich are the baddest boys on campus. But that's not all they share. The four friends also share a 300-year-old secret: they're warlocks, the teenage descendants of a 17th-century coven of witches. So when the long-banished fifth son suddenly appears and threatens to kill their loved ones, they realize they must face their enemy in order to prevent him from stealing their powers and shattering the covenant forever.

Despite the popular misconception, 'The Covenant' is not based on a novel, graphic novel or any comic-book title. The confusion comes from the fact that Sony had a comic-book of the same name created for the purposes of promoting the movie. Just prior to the release of this movie, Top Cow Comics printed a four part comic-book miniseries by Aron Coleite and Tone Rodriguez entitled The Covenant. Neither the authors of the comic-book miniseries nor Top Cow Comics is mentioned in the movies' credit sequences, so the comic-book miniseries is not regarded as source material by the makers of this movie.

Typically, I'm in the Minority Again. I LOVE This Movie!
Okay, so it's a male version of the Craft...kinda. Yes, I'd have to agree with that summation; however, this features MUCH more story, more meat, more history, and a FAR better execution than the Craft. It also presents a much better developed story, characters, and production style.
This is dark, yet shines throughout. It is witty without being stupid. It is serious without taking itself too seriously. It is entertaining without losing sight of the fact that its audience wants to be uplifted by their entertainment.
This work features some innovatively creative elements, great performances, and strong dialog combined with historically based characters, enlightened direction, and an incredibly slick production style that does not lose itself in its...slickness. *L* I really enjoy this, and have the extended edition in my DVD collection.
All in all? It's not good for the kiddies. It tends to be a bit harsh in places, but falls well within the PG-13 rating it receives. Billed as "horror," this work is more "thriller," in my opinion. It makes for decent Friday/Saturday night viewing, if you have not yet seen it.
It rates an 8.7/10 from...
