This is a great movie, just not for everyone
The Covenant is a movie you either love or you absolutely hate. It's a thriller, it's meant more to tell a story than anything else and it does achieve that. It is a great little thriller, it isn't incredibly scary, but it is not meant to be. This movie is something you have to take for what it is, it's a movie, it's got a good background origins, they have great explanations for things that happen in the film, it connects together well. If you don't like movies about people in university, movies about the supernatural, movies that have a slower pace to take its time for the plot, or thrillers, this isn't a movie for you.
