A good movie

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to watch it. Indeed, Bill Paxton has built up an interesting career as an actor and this was his directing debut but I didn't expect him to produce something so striking. Indeed, it is honestly one of the most realistic and spellbinding movie dealing with a serial killer I have ever seen. There were some supernatural elements bu... read more

Watched this on line last week and didnt expect much to be honest - nice suprise. Good little film clever story and well worth watching. Alittle slow in parts and not edge of the seat entertainment but pleasing.

My Top 35 Halloween Favorites: Demons & Devils (35 movies items)

"A widowed father swears that he's been touched by the hand of God and enlists his two boys in helping him to wipe out "demons" who walk the Earth in human form. But is he really a divine slayer of evil or just a serial killer with a biblical excuse? Frailty is a movie that proves that the only thing better than a high quality serial killer flick is a high quality serial killer flick with a twist ending. "

Disappointing (45 movies items)

" It is creepy. It's also extremely predictable, simplistic and dumb. And the ending is just terrible., possibly the worst ending they could end the movie on, very anticlimactic."

*This was the first film Bill Paxton directed the next one was The Greatest Game Ever Played which was also really good.

*This is the first film written by Brent Hanley and the only one I ever heard of.

*Thanks to Netflix for pulling out stuff you forget about.

*So let's see if this is yet another good performance from the legend Bill Paxton.
