I'm interested in any horror movies which can be considered Christian. I'm not a great expert in horror movies, 'The Frailty' is the only one that immediately comes to mind. Advise any, please.

The original "The Omen" was a horror movie written by a Christian and with a pretty obvious Christian world-view. (Whether you agree with the theories about prophecy or not, they are based on the Bible.) (The sequels had nothing to do with Biblical Christianity. I suspect the scripts were not written by the same person as wrote the original.)
Perhaps "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" could be considered a horror movie. It's about a woman who some of the characters say is possessed by a demon and others say is simply mentally ill. It's supposedly based on a true story, but I don't claim to know how close to the true story it is. To the extent that it follows the real story, I think it gives a very fair hearing to each side.
"The Devil's Advocate" struck me as being a Christian story, albeit with some Hollywood mangling. I don't know if the original script-writer was a Christian, but I suspect he was.
Lots of horror movies have Christian elements -- they're often about demons and a priest will have a prominent role.
Some horror movies have Christian elements but are totally anti-Christian. "The Rapture" comes to mind. I saw many reviews on some movie review site by people who thought it was a Christian movie. But the whole point of it was how horrible it would be if those crazy Christians were really right and there really is a God who sends people to Hell, etc.
I'm not particularly a horror movie fan so I can't think of other examples.
