{January 10, 2007}   Movie Review-The Covenant

I just rented this film. The Covenant is a very fun take on the topic of witches. Set in the present it follows 5 students who just happen to be a direct bloodline to the Witch Trials in the 1600’s. It mixed just enough hollywood into it’s mythos while still managing to stay true to some of the realities of witchcraft. It has a look much like the first Underworld (same production) but feels more like a cross between Lost Boys and The Craft. It is more a dark drama then horror, though it does have a few moments that make you jump. All in all a great film. 4 and a half out of 5 fangs from me.
