Frailty

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

No soul is safe.

Set in present day Texas, Frailty centres on the FBI's search for a serial killer who calls himself "god's hands.”

Fenton Meeks (Matthew McConaughey) approaches lead investigator agent Wesley Doyle (Powers Boothe) claiming that he knows the identity of the killer. The FBI agent is curious, but unimpressed until Fenton reveals that the killer is his younger brother Adam (Levi Kreis).

Fenton recounts how he and his brother grew up in a very loving family, raised by their widowed father (Bill Paxton). All that changed, the day his father awoke believing he had been visited by an angel and given a mission to destroy "demons" - seemingly normal looking people, who walked this earth as pure evil. Fenton's father, and then his brother Adam, swore to carry out this "divine" mission. Fenton refused to participate in the killings and tried to persuade his brother to do the same, but it was obvious to him that they had "snapped". Out of loyalty however, he refused to go to the police, until now.

Believing Fenton's startling tale of the slaughter of innocents, the FBI agent follows Fenton to the family's rose garden only to be surprised that neither evil nor innocence are what they seem.
