The Covenant (2006)

Another teen horror flick ala 'Buffy' & 'Charmed', that critics have hated but audiences have lapped up, about the Sons of Ipswich: four young students bound by their sacred ancestry.

Privilege and beauty abound at Spenser Academy, a New England boarding school for the region's reigning elite.

When a fifth descendant suddenly moves to town, secrets begin to unravel which threaten to break the covenant of silence that has protected their families for hundreds of years.
