FBI agent Wesley Doyle is startled by the spontaneous declaration of youngster Fenton Meiks about how his father's delusions to have a divine mission as avenging angel required him and his brother Adam to become his 'demon-slaying' murder accomplices. And how hard an dangerously revolting proved. But when Doyle accepts to be shown concealed victim graves, the plot twists in the present just as gruesomely. Written by
When Fenton is digging the dungeon (from 50:18 to 51:37) his T-shirt is wrapped around his head. At 50:15 in the director commentary Bill Paxton says "These [scenes] were designed in the storyboards. It was described that he'd put his T-shirt on his head by Brent Hanley." At 50:50 in the writer commentary Brent Hanley says "I like the shirt over the head. That's actually really cool. I think Matt O'Leary did that himself." Since David Ivie drew the storyboards, the T-shirt on the head might even have been David's idea. See more »
When Agent Hull comes in Fenton's house, he sees the cork-board with Fenton's victim list. When it is first shown, the list is pinned up straight, with about a couple of inches of cork-board visible under it. However, when the list is seen again, it is slightly tilted, and pinned directly above a picture (with cork-board no longer visible). See more »

What a fantastic movie! Bill Paxton and Mathew McConaughey are absolutely terrific in this film! A must-see!. Bill Paxton, one of the greatest actors and director of all time (just for Frailty), has made a movie which is still terrifying people, especially me to this day. He should have won an Oscar for his wonderful acting and directing. This is his best role in a film ever! Matthew McConaughey has a liking to work in crappie movies, see Fools Gold and Sahara, but in Frailty he works to the best of his abilities resulting in perfection. Matt O'Leary and Jeremy Sumpter did really well for teenage actors and their performances were engaging and promising. The film doesn't have any boring bits that bore you to death or are slow but instead they are fast-paced and well-packed. The twist at the end will leave some viewers shocked while others will have a hint of the end. Sadly, I was one of those people and that is why it lost a star from me. There are somethings which make the film more mysterious and engaging, like the beheading scenes but they don't actually show it. That is how smart Bill Paxton is. The end is confusing and you will be thinking if it is real or not. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my entire life and it will remain in that list forever.
Fenton Meeks (Matthew McConaughey), comes forth to tell the FBI that his brother Adam may be the serial killer who calls himself God's Hands, who the FBI has been searching for. The film uses flashbacks to show Meeks' childhood with a father (Bill Paxton) who believed he was on a mission from God to destroy demons that inhabit human bodies. Fenton saw his dad as evil, while Adam saw him as a hero.
Nearly everyone will love or like this film but the 2 percent retards don't know a thing about fun or movies and they probably like criticizing everything they see or will ever see. The narration by Fenton Meiks (Matthew McConaughey) added more taste to the film and I always love films with narration, simply because the voice of the narrator and his story telling is so, so.......compelling. Everyone should at least watch it once and should definitely prepare for a roller-coaster ride about religion, and right an wrong. 9/10 - Incredible!
