THE COVENANT - less horror, more nonsense

THE COVENANT is a mildly amusing teen flick that happens to have some warlocks and wire-fu in it. A teenage girl transfers to an exclusive American prep school and begins flirting with a hot guy from the swim team. Trouble is, the hot guys from the swim team are collectively known as the "Sons of Ipswich". This means that they have low level super-powers and drive about in cool cars saying stupid things like: "I'm going to make you my Wee-yotch!" One of the Sons starts a feud with the other sons, culminating in him taking the hot chick hostage and some low-level wire-fu stunts. Stuff gets blown up. The boy gets the girl. You don't get those 90 minutes back. But hey, what should we expect from the director of the piss-poor Exorcist prequel, not to mention THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT and CUTHROAT ISLAND? Renny Harlin has sure fallen a long way off the pace of DIE HARD 2.

THE COVENANT was released last fall and is now available on DVD
