As some of you may have noticed, I have a DVD collection of well over a hundred movies. What you probably don't know is that after I buy most of them, I don't even watch them. Strange, huh?

Anyway, Steven fell asleep on the couch last night so I popped in one of the movies that I have really wanted to watch - Frailty, a movie about a father who sees demons and teaches his kids how to destroy them. One of the kids sees his dad commiting murder and one sees him dispatching demons which leads to a struggle of what is truly reality.

All in all, I quite liked it. The ending was not impossible to guess, but I thought it was done very well and I really liked the idea behind it. The two kids who played Fenton and Adam were great. Rarely does a movie like this get kids this good. Bill Paxton directed it (it was shot in just 37 days) and I thought he did a good job since he has directed a film in almost twenty years. I would have liked it a little more suspenseful, but I still recommend it.

Anyone else seen it? What did you think?
