    Default Kingdom / Riget?

    Has anyone watched the Danish "Riget" directed by Lars von Trier that was inspired by Kingdom Hospital? I loved it! I was so sorry that it wasn't able to finish. Unfortunately they ran into filming issues and by the time that got sorted out, they'd lost a lot of their cast. I really loved it though. I just didn't find the American version as gritty and gripping.

    It was the other way around -- Kingdom Hospital was inspired by Season 1 of Riget, which SK watched while he was filming The Stand. I didn't care as much for the second season because of some of the things it did to favored characters, but "Little Brother" was creepy in a cool way.

    Yes, I saw the original when it was released on VHS here in the states. I loved it! It was way creepier than King's version.
