To Save the Future, They Must Battle Their Past.
Four young men who belong to a supernatural legacy are charged with stopping the evil force they released into the world years earlier. Another great force they must contend with is the jealousy and suspicion that threatens to tear them apart.

"Lifting a page from The Lost Boys...  Rob Humanick, Slant Magazine

Editor's Note
Renny Harlin (DIE HARD 2, DEEP BLUE SEA) directs this supernatural thriller about descendants of powerful New England families. The sons of Ipswich are legendary at Spenser Academy, the local boarding school. Handsome and popular, these four teenage friends can trace their roots to the founding families of the Ipswich Colony, settled in the late 1600s. For years these Massachusetts families have harbored the secret that they possess supernatural powers. Their descendants--Caleb (Steven Strait), Reid (Toby Hemingway), Tyler (Chace Crawford), and Pogue (Taylor Kitsch)--have inherited magical powers that first manifested themselves when the boys turned 13 years old. In a nutshell, they can do anything. As they approach their 18th birthdays, they are preparing to "ascend," which means their powers will grow stronger. The downside? The magic is seductive and addictive, and causes premature aging with each use.

Ringleader Caleb tries to keep his friends from using magic recklessly, but as the school year begins, strange events and a strong gut instinct convince Caleb that someone is using very powerful magic. Meanwhile, Caleb is exploring his newfound affection for transfer student Sarah (Laura Ramsey). To Caleb's dismay, Sarah becomes a pawn in a power struggle with a descendant of the fifth founding family of Ipswich, a line thought to be lost during Salem's witch trials. Is Caleb strong enough to maintain his power and keep his family and friends safe, or will he yield to this new threat and sacrifice himself? The film draws interesting parallels between the luring, addictive power of magic and the addictions real teenagers face. The sufficiently creepy setting echoes New England and sets the stage for supernatural phenomena. THE COVENANT also stars Sebastian Stan as Chase Collins, a wealthy newcomer to Spenser, and Jessica Lucas as Kate, Sarah's roommate and Pogue's girlfriend.

Expert Review The Covenant
By: Blake French filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 12/22/2006 5:43 PM
If nothing else, The Covenant is a testament to successful -- albeit misleading -- advertising. From the trailers, The Covenant looks like a sexy supernatural thriller, a cross between The Craft and The Lost Boys, about four attractive young men -- born from a family of witches -- with extraordinary powers, who must confront an ancient rival right before their 18th birthday. Pretty cool, huh?...read the full review
Expert Review The Covenant

I cannot begin to account how many cringe-worthy moments there are in the film. But if you make a drinking game out of every horrible, embarrassing line of dialogue, you'll be unconscious before the film is halfway over. Here are a few gems: (Begin drinking now)"Harry Potter can kiss my ass!", "That guy's puking sure came at an opportune time!" and the classic (take two shots)"I'm going to make you my We-otch!!" J.S. Cardone really needs a dialogue filter. I hope he got one at Christmas. ...read the full review

San Francisco Chronicle 7 of 10
The movie about modern-day warlocks has one of those plots where who gets asked to the dance is almost as important as the fate of the planet. A group of teen boys have all the power in the world, and like Scott Baio in "Zapped," they use it to lift a girl's skirt...It's not quite as stupid as it sounds, partly because Harlin knows how to direct action and partly because the actors are so darn good-looking. Strait in particular has sort of a Rob Lowe-in-"St. Elmo's Fire" thing going. Maybe there's a midseason replacement show on the new CW network that still needs a male lead. - Peter Hartlaub
