Within the walls and labyrinthine corridors of a Danish hospital otherworldy events are unfolding.

Amidst the unfolding drama spirits and demons have been awakened.

The first UK release of the full length original broadcast.

wanted to buy for a long time - couldn't find it anywhere. reminds me of watching telly with friends at uni - great ! quirky , specific and twisted sense of humour - not a horror as such at all - to me more like a comedy - could watch it over and over again -

5.0 out of 5 stars scary and funny 12 Jun 2014
Compulsive viewing, my favourite is Lars van Trier commenting at the end of each episode, tongue in cheek, yet genuinely scary.
A must for everyone who dislikes primary colours, and has become fluent in Danish and Swedish recently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, Hospital drama 15 Mar 2014
By Terry
Verified Purchase
Brought this after watching the Steven King version.
I can't really compare them as the story may be the same however this one is more bizarre and leaves more to the imagination.
I highly recommend it, however this is no dubbed.

3.0 out of 5 stars WRITE THE THEME TUNE; SING THE THEME TUNE 26 July 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a middling sort of program -- at times sarcastic, at times cloyingly sentimental, at times funny but sadly and persistently off stride. As an experiment in compiling a number of genre clichés into a single series, it almost works. But for each moment of amusement there are many, many minutes to slog through. To his credit, Lars seems upfront about the whole thing: the tell happens in the titles when, during the ponderous theme music, the lyrics simply run out and the singers are left to laboriously chuff "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 KINGDOM!!!". Maybe a countdown would have been even funnier?
