In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we review the 2001 horror film “Frailty” starring Bill Paxton and Matthew McConaughey…
Growing up in Texas with a religious upbringing that usually involved reading the Book of Revelations and the Old Testament in the bible, writer Brent Hanley was inspired to write a movie based on some of those same kind of themes.
A huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock and Stephen King as well, Hanley crafted a story about a single father with two sons, who is visited by an angel one day and he’s informed that he’s been tasked by God to become a demon slayer.
While one of the boys is more than happy to join this idyllic crusade, the other is horrified at his father’s actions to snuff out people he’s supposedly been told are evil doers.
With a running narrative by Matthew McConaughey with Bill Paxton as a first time director, the film went onto be called an “underrated gem” while earning high marks from reviewers.
