As the new night nurse at a soon to be abandoned children's hospital readies the last group of orphans to leave, it becomes increasingly clear that these are not normal children. Something living in the hospital, something the children call the "mechanical girl," has a terrifying hold over them and will stop at nothing to keep them in the hospital with her forever. Written by
'Jaume Balaguero' came up with the idea for the story after seeing an early 20th century medical photo of a young girl with osteogenesis imperfecta. See more »
At the end of the movie, Robert takes unconscious Amy out of the hospital. The cardiac monitor shows absence of cardiac electrical activity, i.e. asystole. Asystole is a type of cardiac arrest classified as "non shockable rhythm" and its initial management exclude the use of defibrillation. They should have started cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) maneuvers instead. Furthermore, when an electrical shock is delivered, a typical waveform should have appeared in the monitor. See more »
I just finished watching Jaume (THE NAMELESS, DARKNESS) Balaguero's third film FRAGILE starring Calista Flockheart. It is no secret that I enjoy his work but I really think this is his best film. It is both incredibly scary and emotionally sensitive (something I haven't seen in a horror film since, uh, forever). Balaguero has an amazingly subtle style but he builds the suspense perfectly for the first half. The second half is nearly all chills and they really gave me goosebumps (something I haven't experienced in, uh, a while). He also throws in an excellent twist that would make M. Night envious. And he isn't afraid to take risks as a filmmaker (you'll understand what I mean by the end). Easily one of the best horror films I have seen this year
