Frank the Bastard movie rating: red light

Frank the Bastard red light

Dreary New England noir soap about a woman uncovering family secrets that hadn’t really been worth keeping is like a would-be supernatural thriller that forgot the magic and the chills. Overlong, overcomplicated, and yet undernourished. Or undernoirish.
