Four best friends, young warlocks of the same coven who all share a same secret: a magic powers, suddenly have to protect themselves from a stranger-another warlock just like them who has come to town to destroy their coven after a 300 years old hate...
Renny Harlin is known for putting tidbits of Finnish culture in his movies. In The Covenant he has hung a famous Finnish painting on Sarah's wall. It is painted by Hugo Simberg and it's called "Haavoittunut enkeli" ("Wounded Angel"). It has an angel in it and there are two boys carrying her away. See more »
While trying to escape the police, Caleb suggests that they have some fun and cut across Marblehead. Marblehead is not only nearly 20 miles from Ipswich, but is also a very densely populated peninsula. See more »
I must admit this wasn't as bad as I expected. I've seen several Renny Harlin movies, none of which I've liked (in fact, I hated them). So, going into this one, I had little hope (if any). The story isn't the most originial thing I've ever heard of, but it's not a carbon copy of anything else. The story development is pretty straight-forward and predictable. The graphics are what you'd expect, as well. My main complaint with this film is what I call gratuitous dialogue: when people talk too much or think outloud to fill the audience in on what they're thinking. There's a lot of "ha ha I'm so evil" talk from the villain, as well. But, hey, if you can't have fun at the movies, why bother going? All in all, worth seeing at least once.
