It's nice to stumble on a decent, under the radar horror movie now and again. Fragile isn't amazing, but it did surprise me with how watchable and well-made it is.
Calista Flockhart stars as a nurse recently arrived at Mercy Falls Hospital, which is almost 100 years old and full of history. The hospital is about to be closed, though, and as the inhabitants of the children's ward are leaving unexplainable, malevolent events are beginning to occur. One of the children speaks of seeing a "mechanical girl", and the mystery of that ghostly apparition may be the key to it all.
Fragile is more creepy than frightening, but it kept my interest throughout. There's a bit of a mystery woven within it that matches well with the atmosphere the movie cultivates, and even a bit of a twist to keep things from being entirely predictable. There's some occasional over-acting from the numerous child actors (which is understandable), as well as some from Flockhart and Elena Anaya (which is less so), but that's all I can really complain about. I liked Fragile. It takes the time to establish mood and characters while managing to never teeter into boredom. If you're in the mood for a solid ghost story, you could do much, much worse.
Not actually Calista Flockart Fan but I think she did a nice work in this Movie.
Quick Review:- Boring. Long Review:- Boring and not very scary.
Cast: Calista Flockhart, Elena Anaya, Richard Roxburgh, Gemma Jones, Yasmin Murphy, Colin McFarlane, Michael Pennington, Daniel Ortiz, Susie Trayling
Director: Jaume Balagueró
Summary: In this atmospheric thriller, American nurse Amy (Calista Flockhart) is thrust into an eerie and dangerous world when she takes a temporary job at an isolated children's hospital in England that's slated for closure. The children, who are being terrorized and injured in baffling ways, confide in Amy that "the mechanical girl" doesn't want them to leave, and Amy must convince skeptics that the menace is real.
My Thoughts: "I wasn't expecting to like this film. But I ended up finding myself interested in the story and happy I took a chance on an unknown thriller. I wouldn't consider this a scary film, although it does have the spooky qualities down packed, but thriller definitely fits the film. Good acting by the children and Flockhart. The film is more interesting then most scary flicks being put out today. It's got the perfect scenario, an isolated haunted children's hospital. It doesn't get better then that. In the end it's worth taking a look at."
