''The Covenant'' is a 2006 supernatural horror/thriller... [[UncertainAudience something]] film starring Steven Strait, Taylor Kitsch, Toby Hemingway and Chace Crawford as your average [[MrFanservice bromance group]], allowing for plenty of possibly intentional {{ho|Yay}}moerotic [[FoeYay moments]].

* RealityWarper: The best single description for the ComboPlatterPowers. The only thing they seemingly can't do is [[spoiler: keep the power from prematurely aging them or otherwise be immortal]].

* CastFromLifespan: The more you use the power, the more it ages you. (Maybe this explains the DawsonCasting?) The main character's father is shown, who should be around 40, but looks closer to 100.
** This is only post-ascension. Before 18, they can cast spells all they want and won't age.

[[ChildhoodFriends Four teenage boys]], [[TheHero Caleb]], [[TheLancer Pogue]], [[TheTrickster Reid]] and [[WhoIsThisGuyAgain Tyler]], have magic powers inherited from witches in colonial New England. When they're not jumping or driving off cliffs, the boys attend [[BoardingSchool Spencer Academy]]. At the start of the film, each boy is awaiting his [[TheHerosBirthday 18th birthday]], when he will [[TookALevelInBadass "ascend"]] and increase in magical strength. But there's a catch: the magic is so addictive, it's "seductive," and the more it's used, the more the boys' bodies degrade and age prematurely. Enter Sarah, Caleb's [[SatelliteLoveInterest love interest]], and Chase, a mysterious {{new transfer student}}. [[FinalBattle You can imagine what follows.]]
