Before it became a TV show here in the States The Kingdom was known as “Riget” in Germany where Lars von Trier directed the film as a popular TV mini-series. Arriving on DVD next week from Koch Lorber Films, The Kingdom: Series One and Two includes both volumes of Lars von Trier’s acclaimed supernatural thriller, which takes place in Denmark’s most technologically advanced hospital – inside its mazelike corridors, bizarre and otherworldly events are occurring. Evil has taken up residence, and now it won’t let go. Today we were supplied with five sets of these DVDs for some lucky B-D readers to win. Read on to see how.
The Kingdom is the most technologically advanced hospital in Denmark, a gleaming bastion of medical science. A rash of uncanny occurrences, however, begins to weaken the staff’s faith in science–a phantom ambulance pulls in every night, but disappears; voices echo in the elevator shaft; and a pregnant doctor’s fetus seems to be developing much faster than is natural. At the goading of a spiritualist patient, some employees work to let supernatural forces rest.
