Storyline

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.

Trivia

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.

Goofs

When Caleb is driving, before he sees the graveling and has the accident, he is on the left side of the road. There was no one else shown on the road, so he wasn't passing anyone, which means there is no reason for him to be on the wrong side of the road BEFORE he was frightened by the image. See more »

Great popcorn flick!
7 September 2006 | by (Durham, NC USA) – See all my reviews

Just came back from an advanced screening tonight.

No, this isn't going to win any awards. It didn't 'reinvent the genre'. It is just a very well made horror/action film.

Renny Harlin has taken a bunch of unknowns, a small budget, and has made a great looking film with some nicely fleshed out characters, nice fight scenes, some decent scares, and some VERY impressive special effects.

What really impressed me most of all was the tender love story between the teenage couple. When was the last time you saw a film where teenagers were in love and they just kissed, smiled and said goodnight? it was so sweet and innocent - far from the graphic bump and grind of most of today's film. I suppose the PG-13 was partly responsible for that - and if so, then bring on more PG-13 teenage films!

Don't let the PG-13 put you off. This is a very good film that anyone should enjoy...even adults like me : )

If you have seen the trailer and liked it, then I think you will like the film. I had a great time tonight and will get this when it comes out on DVD..
