To the students of the Spenser Academy, the Sons of Ipswich are the baddest boys on campus. But that's not all they share. The four friends also share a 300-year-old secret: they're warlocks, the teenage descendants of a 17th-century coven of witches. So when the long-banished fifth son suddenly appears and threatens to kill their loved ones, they realize they must face their enemy in order to prevent him from stealing their powers and shattering the covenant forever.

Did You Know?
The outside Danvers mansion, which is always seen from far away, is really a derelict water purification facility, with some window lighting and greenery added by the production team.
In the scene where Kate is talking to Caleb in the store we can see Sarah step out from behind an isle and in the next shot she steps out again.
What's up fellas?
Where were you? I stopped by to give you a lift.
Had things to do. How's the party?
Don't know. Just got here.
Well hell boys,
[eyes go black]

Mindless, but Fun
Anyone who expected this movie to be an amazing, intelligent film will
be severely disappointed. However, from the trailer, I made a guess as
to the general quality of the film. I was right, and I enjoyed myself.
Hot guys who do magic. That's pretty much all you need to know about
the movie. The dialogue is crap, most of the acting is so-so,
characters are woefully underdeveloped, and the plot is flimsy at best.
That said, it was a fun movie. There was exciting action, and lots of
fan service for the girls in the audience (Don't worry boys, there are
girls in dubious sleepwear, too) It's one of those movies where you sit
and watch and say, "This is a really good idea, but even *I* could
write a better movie than this." The concept is cool, the execution
not-so-hot. But as a break from the grind of class? Definitely good.
The action was cool. The boys were pretty. And, really, what more does
a girl need?
