      Critics Consensus

      The Covenant plays out like a teen soap opera, full of pretty faces, wooden acting, laughable dialogue, and little suspense. Read critic reviews

      Audience Reviews for The Covenant

      • Apr 02, 2015

        Trying blatantly to cash in on the cult success of The Craft, The Covenant first has an all male leading class instead of women, and there's one other defining difference: Unlike The Crat, it's crap.

        Is this a joke? The Covenant is basically a super downgraded version of the Craft. The lines are terrible, the worst screenplay in the history possibly.

        More aimed at younger teens as it's trying to get in on the Twilight supernatural scene.
