Not sure what to say about this one... It was genuinely scary/creepy, despite being unbeautiful and not particularly well-acted. I was legitimately engrossed through most of it, but the twist lost me. Not a great movie, but an entertaining enough genre exercise.

Adam Meiks (Matthew McConaughey) informs Agent Wesley Doyle (Powers Boothe) who the "God's Hand" serial killer is. He informs Doyle about his story when he was young, which involves his father (Bill Paxton) and Fenton his brother. Adam discloses that his father was approached by an angel to destroy demon's, and that he can see their acts when touched before disposing of them. A horrific premise but not much gory, but delves into the psyche of the Meiks family. Some nice quotes: Fenton - "Nothing that crazy could be real." Dad - "We don't kill people, we destroy demons." Adam - "Well you haven't even heard me out yet and already you doubt me." If only it had a better score and technical camera angles then I would have given this a higher rating. The kids, McConaughey and Paxton …
