The Covenant


Back during the Salem witch trials in the USA in the 1600s, some families swore an oath of silence about their powers, and survived to the present day. The firstborn child inherits the powers at 13, and they are maximised when the child turns 18. Four boys, each with powers, are in school together, when a newcomer arrives. It's not long before they suspect that he may too have powers, and this frightens them, as he is already over 18. This sets the scene for a demonic showdown, after lots of teen-friendly nudity, gross-outs, etc.
