We previously told you about Fangoria’s FrightFest, a partnership with Lightning Media to distribute independent horror films via DVD, Video on Demand, and Digital Download; and now we’ve got some additional details and a trailer for one of the films, Jaume Balaguero’s Fragile.
Set and filmed on Britain’s Isle of Wight, the award-winning Fragile takes place in a children’s hospital that has been the scene of a railroad accident and is due to shut down after nearly a century of service. Calista Flockhart stars as Amy, an American nurse who is sent over from London to help out and discovers that the eight kids who still reside there believe something invisible — and menacing — is haunting the premises. Richard Roxburgh and Spanish actress Elena Anaya, both previously seen in Van Helsing, co-star.
Special features on the Fragile DVD, which is due out on August 6, will include a behind-the-scenes featurette, a look at the creation of the film’s visual effects, and trailers for all eight FrightFest entries.
