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
