Editorial Reviews

In 1692, in the Ipswich Colony of Massachusetts, five families with untold power formed a covenant of silence. One family, lusting for more, was banished, their bloodline disappearing without a trace. Until now.

Four young students at an elite private school who are descendants of the original families who settled in Ipswich Colony in the 1600s, are bound by their sacred ancestry and special powers. When the body of a dead student is discovered after a party, secrets begin to unravel that threaten to break the covenant of silence that has protected their families for hundreds of years.

5.0 out of 5 stars PEOPLE...RELAX!! July 31, 2007
Format:DVD
Ok, so this movie will not change your life or inspire you to be good to mankind...what it will do is give you almost 2 hours of sheer eye candy!! The guys in this movie are seriously HOT and the story is not bad, if you are in to witchcraft and have enjoyed such movies as, Underworld, Underworld Evolution, The Lost Boys, ETC,,then you will like this one. I happen to be into this sort of stuff and really have a good time watching it. The soundtrack rocks, as well. So, people, relax...calm down,....it is just a dang movie!!! Rent it, buy it, whatever, just enjoy it and stop thinking to hard about it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't as bad as I was lead to believe. March 1, 2008
Format:Blu-ray
The Story: In 1692, five families in the Ipswich colony of Massachusetts hold a mysterious power that they are forced to hide from society for fear of being executed of witches. To hide themselves, they form a secret Covenant which will help protect their ancestors from being hunted down.
Fast forward to the present day and four teenagers are forced to live in the modern day with these powers, though they can't resist the temptation of using them now and again. Caleb Danvers is coming up to his 18th Birthday and will thus ascend to the next level of this mysterious power, although a mysterious 5th power is seeking to destroy Caleb and take it from him.

The Review: This was a surprisingly entertaining film which, for the teenage movie genre was very unique. The friendship between the four boys, and the development of the relationship between Caleb (Strait) and Sarah (Ramsey) are in my eyes very believable which leads you into caring for these characters on another level. Being of the story behind this movie and the overall format, I felt that the director was trying way too hard to bring up the age rating by adding some random pointless nudity and language in an attempt to have it appeal to an older audience. The scene transition I felt didn't work as well as I'd hoped, some scenes will feature some really cool and memorable moments, e.g. the scene where Caleb is driving and he hits an 18 wheeler head on. This type of scene would have you think this is worthy of a 5 star rating but then the next scene would contain some extremely corny dialogue which will make you want to bury your head in your hands in shame.

Overall this is an entertaining film that you will enjoy if you don't watch it with this expectation that you're getting a 5 star script and 5 star acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE MALE MODELS OF IPSWITCH October 19, 2007
Format:DVD
Heterosexual director Renny (DIE HARD 2, DEEP BLUE SEA) Harlin has inexplicably slipped over to the other side with his boy-band-of-witches saga, THE COVENANT. He has taken a bunch of Aberzombies, put them in some sort of prep school and given them supernatural powers, forced them to join the swim team, and thrown a few disposable girls in for good measure. And at no point does the plot of the film or the acting interfere with the camera's view of said Aberzombies' abs.

This tale of the "Sons of Ipswitch", the gifted descendants of the founding fathers of Salem, moves along fairly briskly, with some decent effects and fun stunt work, but first and foremost, the real object of the film is to linger lasciviously upon the admirable assets of young, unironically-named Steven Strait. Seriously - the witchcraft, spiders, explosions, raves, and everything else take humble second-stage to loving shots of Strait rocking a tanktop, Strait rocking a tight v-neck t-shirt, Strait wearing a Speedo. We haven't seen male body-worship on this scale since Ryan Reynolds battled evil spirits that threatened to keep him wet and shirtless for Amityville Horror's entire running time.

Strait plays Caleb, a member of an elite band of underwear models who have gone undercover as witches at a prep school in Massachusetts. (You know, so as not to attract attention). Aside from Caleb, there's the long-haired one, the blonde one, and another one who evades description entirely, to the point that it's impossible to identify him in any group scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very excellent movie December 16, 2006
By J. L.
Format:DVD
First of all, the battle scene is one of the best supernatural battle scenes from a movie I've seen. The plasma and the attacks look very real. I thought that this was much better than The Craft, which is quite silly and cheesy. The cast is handsome and that always makes for a nice to watch movie. The mood created throughout is fantastic with the dark scenes, brooding buildings, quaint yet creepy town. Yeah, there's rain at night and not during the day, but who gives a freak? That's a silly thing to complain about. Movies are redundant, deal with it. Everyone expects something completely different in every single movie, but that's not the reality of the matter, so enjoy a movie for what it is, and this one is SUPERB. I thought the acting was believable and the special effects were really great and look completely realistic, which is a good thing except for the scene with the spiders. :) The soundtrack is on point, due to the fact that they got it perfectly. I recommend this movie to everyone.
