Product Description

Product Description

Horrormeister Stephen King presents "Kingdom Hospital," a hospital with a bizarre population that includes a nearly blind security guard, a nurse who regularly faints at the sight of blood and a paraplegic artist whose recovery is a step beyond miraculous. When patients and staff hear the tortured voice of a little girl crying through the halls, they are dismissive of any suggestion of mysticism or unseen powers …but at their own peril. Starring: Andrew McCarthy, Bruce Davison, Diane Ladd, Ed Begley, Jr.

Amazon.ca

Kingdom Hospital is horror novelist Stephen King's adaptation of Danish director Lars Von Trier's cult miniseries The Kingdom, geared very much for an American audience. The story unfolds across 15 hours, telling the story of a hospital in Maine that's been built on the site of a 19th-century mill fire that killed most of its young occupants--themes that King fans will be familiar with. In the present day, Kingdom Hospital is haunted by the ghost of 10-year-old child worker Mary and, even more bizarrely, a fearsome giant anteater-like creature called Antubis. It falls to the ace doctor Hook (Andrew McCarthy), the paraplegic artist Jack Coleman (Peter Rickman), and the hypochondriac psychic Sally Druse (Diane Ladd) to enlist the help of a surreal assortment of hospital staff and patients to help Mary and save Kingdom Hospital itself from certain doom.

Fans of Stephen King will probably enjoy the blend of black comedy, spectral horror, and general weirdness, which owes a big debt to previous television series like Twin Peaks and even ER. But too often, Kingdom Hospital seems to be trying too hard to make itself into a cult series, something which King is just not a subtle enough writer to carry off. But Kingdom Hospital looks good, especially the CGI Antubis, who steals every scene in which he appears. Generally, though, the series is more of an entertaining experiment than a cult-in-the-making. --Ted Kord

Format: DVD
Kingdom Hospital was a 2004 mini series based on the teleplay by Stephen King who also excutive produced this weird but wonderful ride.
The series takes its' name from the fictional hospital which it portrays in Lewiston,Maine.The building was erected upon the ground of a mill which burned down(due to arson)in 1869 killing outright most of the child slave labourers but one,Mary Jensen.She escaped briefly only to be caught by the factory owners' sadistic brother and "medical practitioner".He used medically unauthorized procedures on most of his patients/victims and poor Mary succumbed as a result.
Fast forward in time and we enter the world of Kingdom Hospital with its' eclectic variety of medical and support personnel.The story kicks off with the tragic hit and run of a famous local painter and from what I have read probably a close proximity to Stephen Kings' own terrible ordeal some years ago.He is rendered comatose with multiple internal and external injuries and has virtually no hope of recovery.Soon he begins to experience some strange things and he slowly begins a recovery thought impossible by the admitting physicians.However the restless undead are at work and in a battle on this property and he is the pivotal key in the story.Two figures are important to the painter throughout and that is Mary Jensen herself and her "companion" Anubis the mythological Egyptian gatekeeper between our world and the next,who she mistakenly calls Antubis.Antubis closely resembles a giant ant eater,the difference being this one has a long and large mouth with very sharp and powerful teeth.
As the story weaves its' way to its' inevitable climax, many characters come in and out of the story and all are in some way directly affected by the strange malevolence that abounds throughout the hospital.

This is rather unusual even for Stephen King.It's a bit slow in parts but I enjoy looking at the background details anyways.The story is very good and of course is based on an incident in the past which occured on the property on which Kingdom Hospital was built.And so it all comes to a big climax eventually involving the hospital staff and patients, and it is about all the incidents leading up to that.It has moments of humor,and frightening moments, especially for those of us who have to go to the hospital.It makes you think about parellel worlds beside you and what is happening to people who appear to be in comas.I think it is very entertaining!

A great blend of creepiness and humour, Kingdom Hospital is a great addition to the dvd library, even if you don't have Stephen King collection.
