Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Bill Paxton insisted on flying the young Tennessee actor Blake King to the shoot in Los Angeles in order to have a boy with a native southern accent play the small role of Fenton's classmate Eric who invites Fenton to "wrap" Corey's house (at 40:55 in the director commentary).
  • The film is set in Texas and has three Texas-born actors as top-billed stars: Bill Paxton, Matthew McConaughey, and Powers Boothe.
  • Loosely based on the case of American serial killer Joseph Kallinger who murdered three people and tortured four families. He committed these crimes with his 13-year-old son Michael between 1974-1975 in New Jersey. Kallinger pleaded insanity, claiming God had told him to kill.
  • At the title credit (01:12) in the writer commentary, Brent Hanley says "Frailty to me was always about the frailty of perception, the frailty of morality, the frailty of right and wrong." At 02:16 he adds "I liked the idea of an abstract title."
