 Frailty (2001)Review:

Frailty is hardly a horror film in the sense that we understand it. Instead, it is a psychological thriller so creepy that it well deserves its place here. Thereee are some hints of supernatural within the film, but it is in such a subtle manner that, right until the end, you never know what is real and what is made up by the characters’ mind.

The plot backbone is simple and yet the film manages to build a very complex scenario around it, just by playing on the relationship between the dad and his two sons. The fervor of the dad and its youngest kid is genuinely scary and I even found myself wondering if the killing was even condemnable in such case of belief. The acting of both kids, and the one of legendary Bill Paxton (Aliens, Near Dark, Terminator), who is also the film’s director, is what brings most of the film’s strength.

Not really horror, but one of the finest psychological thrillers to be found.
