Flying scenes, frat-boy face-offs and pyrotechnic punch-ups are punctuated by excruciating expository dialogue.

There are worse things for a horror-thriller about supernatural high-schoolers to not be. Like not scary. Or not thrilling. Or not as entertaining as an episode of Charmed.

This is cobbled-together teenybopper tripe about feuding male witches with nothing to offer but classic bad dialogue.

No one has bothered to develop a coherent story or remotely likable characters to sustain the CGI effects, ear-splitting music, and hyperactive editing.

The Covenant has excellent special effects (spiders and specters, oh my!), but it is strikingly lacking in suspense.

All that's truly scary about The Covenant are the words that appear before the title: 'A Renny Harlin Film.'

[Harlin] still can stage a decent super-natural battle royale. But he couldn't scare a mouse. Nor does The Covenant.
