Sheer story-telling classBy Melon from East Sussex , 11 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]A man tells an FBI agent that his brother is the 'God's Hands' serial killer, and then relates the story of their tumultuous childhood with a father who believed he was a demon-slayer. This is a truly great little film that completely grips not with trick photography, effects, cheap shocks or gore but with the power of it's storyline. It sucks you in and doesn't let go until the end.
Nothing in this film is overdone, with good actors bringing realism to every scene by doing as little as possible. That's why this film succeeds where so others fail. It never does anything that detracts from simply telling the story. A genuine minor classic.
(I'm just reluctant to give any film 5 stars.)

Quite amazingBy Rhinogeezer (5 reviews) from Oldham , 02 Sep 2009This movie is a film that has really slipped under the radar.
I am a big fan of Stephen King, and upon hearing how King admired this movie, I thought I would give it a go. Do not watch this thinking with its Demon Theme there will be make-up effects and CGI, because it relies solely on story telling.
Quite amazing film, story, acting and setting.
FrailityBy a customer from London , 29 Jul 2009Not sure why the movie is called Fraility, but the story line takes an unforeseen turn which worth a watch. Certainly not a blockbuster, but I though Matthew played the part well.

Ok, but only OKBy jennibee (11 reviews) from Colchester , 17 Jun 2009This is a slow, pretty dark film typical of Steven King storytelling without the sometimes expected gore or shocks.
Suitably understated performance from McConaughey and the two kids playing the younger brothers are pretty convincing, shame about the sherrif who's main device seems to be to grimace a lot and mutter unconvincingly. Give it a go, but don't expect too much if you prefer your chillers to be fast moving and blood spattered.
