The Covenant Reviews

April 23, 2009
[An] unbewitching brew of clichés.

Director Renny Harlin ("The Long Kiss Goodnight") phones in this thoughtless teen horror flick from screenwriter J.S. Cardone ("The Forsaken").

This forgettable supernatural-teen thriller is the kind of WB-style soap opera where the characters have names like Chase Collins and Reid Garwin.

It's a horror film for the MTV generation, a horror film for the audience of "Laguna Beach"...

... this falls well short of the Buffy-level resonances at which [Harlin] was presumably aiming.
January 9, 2007
...yet another brainless, utterly disposable thriller geared exclusively towards teenagers...

The Covenant looks less like a movie and more like an extended boy band video -- and with about the same amount of depth.

Flying scenes, frat-boy face-offs and pyrotechnic punch-ups are punctuated by excruciating expository dialogue.
December 30, 2006
A patently silly supernatural teen drama, in which a bunch of Young Hollywood types flex their abs and aim their perfectly-calibrated glances at each other.
December 30, 2006
Daft but nonetheless enjoyable supernatural thriller, featuring some hilariously bad dialogue, impressive special effects and some genuinely creepy scenes.
December 30, 2006
Director Renny Harlin helms like a bat out of hell, and obviously doesn't know a pentagram from a mammogram.
December 30, 2006
Utterly stupid and full of lazy plotting and lazier dialogue, this is just idiotic enough to entertain on nights when you want to give your brain a rest.

O máximo que este O Pacto consegue é transformar-se, em seus instantes finais, em uma espécie de Mortal Kombat para imbecis. E, ainda assim, com dificuldade.

It's not a work of originality and the handheld camerawork gets tedious, but let's hope the message that power corrupts gets through

I think the men were cast more for their abs than their acting.
October 13, 2006
Terribly acted, shamelessly unoriginal and executed with little redeeming sense of humour.
October 10, 2006
"A truly lacklustre direct-to-video teen thriller filled with corny effects, chiseled jaw stares and a lot of hokum about Salem witchcraft"

More nonsensical than scary, THE COVENANT conjures a cautionary tale for prep school pretties.
