"In the 17th century, five families with supernatural powers make a pact of silence. Eventually one power-hungry family is banished. The descendants of those four remaining families are heirs to tremendous power. Known as the Sons of Ipswich, the boys attend elite Spencer Academy. When a student there is found dead after a party, unraveling secrets threaten to shatter the pact that has protected the boys’ families for centuries."

Perhaps one of the more memorable horror films of the new millennium, it’s practically required for horror fans to check out The Covenant. This film would help usher in a new trend of paranormal horror in the genre, spawning sequels and imitators in the years to come.
