Critic Reviews of "Frailty"
Associated PressJuly 30, 2013

A resoundingly old-fashioned and well crafted study of evil infecting an American family, "Frailty" moves from strength to strength on its deceptive narrative course.

Reel Film ReviewsDecember 18, 2011
...a solid thriller from a promising first-time director.

Violent and ultimately uneven and unsatisfying.
Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
One of the best horror mysteries ever conceived and yet one constantly over looked.

Frailty marks a fine directorial debut for Bill Paxton. He judges the material expertly and brings it to the boil effectively ...
