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.

Groundbreaking Danish supernatural drama by director Lars Von Trier. Later released in theaters as two 4-hour movies (with minor editing cuts and changes). Von Trier produced Stephen King's remake for US television under the title "The Kingdom Hospital".
