The Covenant by Renny Harlin (Allumination 03 October, 2006 / $29.99) - I found this second-string knockoff of Harry Potter by way of The Lost Boys embarrassingly easy to sit through – which means it ought to entertain fantasy fans in its "teen" (12-15) target audience just fine. (see review)

(Columbia Pictures October 2006 / ) - The Plot: An American woman (Tamblyn) travels to Tokyo to find out what happened to her sister, a nurse who took what seemed to be a routine caretaker job in a family home. She meets a journalist (Chen) with a mutual interest in the events that took place within the otherwise modest residence.
