The Covenant


Sony Pictures' official "The Convenant” website has the first three minutes online... they fail to mention that the first two and a half minutes are the opening credits. I don't know about you, but nothing makes or breaks a movie for me like an opening credit sequence. The other thirty seconds shows the four leads jumping off a cliff, ala “The Lost Boys”. If you’re wondering why the “producers of Underworld” are churning out what essentially looks like an extended boy band video, it turns out that today’s teen girls love horror, much more than their male counterparts (a blurb I got from Variety). The movie’s myspace page has over forty-thousand friends. It’ll be interesting to see how much of that will translate into actual box office (worked for “Step Up”). So teen girls like horror. Does that mean we should have more strong female characters or come up with more reasons to keep Biff shirtless?
