Storyline

Pat Baker is a small town sheriff. His son, Kurt, is a deranged young man with a dark secret. Sheriff Baker's worst nightmare comes true when Kurt escapes from a psychiatric hospital where he was locked away for the brutal murder of his mother thirteen years earlier. Gary, a hospital security guard, sets out into the woods to stop him, but soon finds himself relentlessly hunted by the deranged psychopath intent on killing him and anyone who crosses his path. Sheriff Baker launches an intense search to find his son, only to discover that his daughter, Sara, and her friends are camping in the same woods where Kurt has escaped. Kurt's psychosis escalates, as does his vengeful killing spree, culminating in a terrifying, climactic confrontation with Kurt, the sheriff and his family. Written by Lock It In Entertainment

Amazing beginning and EXTREMELY disturbing ending.

This film takes inspiration from many classic films in the psycho killer genre, but its narrative avoids clichés and has a driving force all its own.

Frayed is a very interesting psychological horror film. Yes, the acting isn't always that stellar sometimes but it has a lot going for it including several twists and some very good gore scenes. The beginning murder is one of the most graphic I've seen in a movie. It will disturb you, yet you will find yourself wanting to go back and re-watch the movie, wondering what clues you might have missed.

The last scene is definitely the most disturbing one of the film (even more than the bloodbath at the beginning).

Highly recommended.
