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 »

The plot was interesting and the effects were well done. The cast is loaded with plenty of beautiful faces and bodies. Unfortunately, this film attracts hordes of teens and pre-teens who squeal every time a guy shows his abs or a girl flashes a little cleavage. I walked out before the halfway point and asked for, and got, my money back. Better to wait to see it on DVD if you can't stand the lack of civility that is common among younger audiences. However, if you can handle being surrounded by teens calling out comments like, "go for the p*ssy," and "nice ass, b*tch," then you might notice that some of the acting by the young performers is really quite credible and the cinematography sets an adequately creepy tone. I wish I could have made it to the end of the film, but I'm afraid I would have been arrested for striking a teen if I had stayed one minute longer.
