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.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Covenant plays out like a teen soap opera, full of pretty faces, wooden acting, laughable dialogue, and little suspense.
Sacramento News & Review
This forgettable supernatural-teen thriller is the kind of WB-style soap opera where the characters have names like Chase Collins and Reid Garwin.

Common Sense Says
Bland horror movie is more silly than scary.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the movie posits four handsome prep school students as descendents of witches, with destructive powers and arrogant attitudes. The film's violence includes plenty of bodies slamming against/through walls, as evidence of the "force" the boys wield, as well as cars flying off a cliff, crashing, and exploding, and spells that send girls into convulsive comas. A dead body alarms a policeman who discovers it in a car. A girl is threatened by a ghostlike figure in the shower. Prep school-aged characters drink, and talk about the power as addictive (alluding to drugs, sort of). A mother smokes and drinks liquor to show her displeasure with her life married to a selfish male witch. Some profanity.
