Frágiles (2005, SPA) C-97m. SCOPE ** D: Jaume Balagueró. Starring Calista Flockhart, Richard Roxburgh, Elena Anaya, Gemma Jones, Yasmin Murphy, Colin McFarlane. Chiller from the maker of [REC] (2007) about nurse Flockhart, who comes to work at a hospital that is about to be abandoned. One of the remaining children claims a girl is haunting the place, and she seems to 'live' on the already closed upper floor. Slightly contrived and pretentious ghost story, well-filmed, though Flockhart just doesn't seem right for the role. Those looking for chills won't be disappointed. Good score. Cowritten by the director. Also known as FRAGILE.
