It's fun having a movie like FRAGILE to watch on a cold and rainy day. It's that kind of film.
Calista Flockhart plays nurse Amy Nicholls who is taking over the night shift within an old hospital that's being shut down and moved. A few of the children have not been moved yet and await their turn to move to the new location. However, as the days drip by, something can be heard bumping and thumping through the old place....and up on the closed off...second floor.
Now, this is not a "mind blowing" film showing new and exciting things, but the old haunted hospital tropes are done well and the story supports the chills and thrills in a fun way.
Jaume Balagueró (REC series of films) is a grand director. He really knows how to frame things and his writing combined with Jordi Galceran made a very interesting little horror mystery here.
If you're a fan of slower paced, character driven haunted horrors, you might want to give Fragile a go. Especially on a dark and stormy night! :)
