FLASHBACK 2010 PICK – 10/26/10 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #26 – Frailty.

Frailty

Frailty deserves the award for the single most underappreciated movie of the last decade. This is one of my all time favorite films, directed by one of my all time favorite actors, Bill Paxton (Game over, man! Game over!) When anyone asks me for a scary movie recommendation, most of the time I tell them to see this. It always comes to mind because it’s truly a movie that everyone can, and everyone will, love. It’s not too over the top for some of the more impressionable viewers, but it’s also not too softball for the more hardcore folks. It walks a perfect line for just about everyone. So here is my recommendation for the cheap seats… Readers of this blog, you must see this film. The creepiness is so subtle that it unknowingly sneaks up on you, until before you know it, you’ve been pulled in to a world that is absolutely haunting. The mood and atmosphere is pitch perfect. I don’t want to ruin too much because that’s the fun of the film, but needless to say it’s about a religious man’s mission to “destroy demons,” and the teaching of his two young sons to assist him. But this doesn’t even scrape the surface. There’s so much more to this movie, and the fact that you really never know where it’s heading is one of its main gifts. Plus, in the acting category, you’ve got Bill Paxton, Matthew McConaughey, Powers Boothe, and two fantastic child actors. It’s just amazing, thrilling, twisting & turning material that will literally keep you on the edge of your seat. I seriously, from the bottom of my heart, love this movie. You will too. I 100% guarantee it.
