One of the best horror mysteries ever conceived and yet one constantly over looked.

A resoundingly old-fashioned and well crafted study of evil infecting an American family, "Frailty" moves from strength to strength on its deceptive narrative course.

Frailty marks a fine directorial debut for Bill Paxton. He judges the material expertly and brings it to the boil effectively ...

Paxton's first movie as director is better than you might expect. It has a first rate cast, and Bill Butler's camerawork and some deft editing help to crank up the tension.

The intricate plotting . . . reveals everything and yet, using the audiences preconceived notions, makes each fact a surprise and each fiction a shock.

Paxton not only directs but acts, so there was a double threat. But he does both with so much commitment that the film is a revelation.

This looks - and chills - like the start of a very promising new career for Paxton.

'Frailty" starts out like a typical Bible killer story, but it turns out to be significantly different (and better) than most films with this theme.

A hot-acid concoction of thrills, spills, trepidation, and one of the most novel stories of recent times.

Any guilt I felt about the film still did not keep me from feeling like I had just witnessed a pretty incredible set of magicians doing a killer trick.

This film is a thinking outside of the box, an answer to viewers who think we can convince ourselves of what not to expect.
