Film: The Covenant

The Covenant is a 2006 supernatural horror/thriller... something film starring Steven Strait, Taylor Kitsch, Toby Hemingway and Chace Crawford as your average bromance group, allowing for plenty of possibly intentional homoerotic moments.

Four teenage boys, Caleb, Pogue, Reid and Tyler, have magic powers inherited from witches in colonial New England. When they're not jumping or driving off cliffs, the boys attend Spencer Academy. At the start of the film, each boy is awaiting his 18th birthday, when he will "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 love interest, and Chase, a mysterious new transfer student. You can imagine what follows.

Despite its potential, it is clear that the producers were trying to make a quick buck off the combination of hot guys and magic, resulting in plenty of Narm. In any event, it has an surprisingly large fanfic community, so there's that.
