Trivia

The exteriors of Kingdom Hospital is actually the Workers Compensation Board building in Richmond, British Columbia, and isn't actually a hospital. However, just across the road from the WCB building is the Richmond Hospital, a real hospital. (The location of both buildings: intersection of Wesminster Highway & Gilbert Road.) See more »

Goofs

When Peter finds the old newspaper clippings in the back of Mary's doll, the headlines say "Hundreds Missing and Dead in Gates Falls Mill fire", and under it is the information on the fire. When Sally and Hook save Mary and the headlines change to "Mill Owner, Foreman Arrested in Arson Plot", underneath is the very same information that was on the last newspaper, which was supposed to no longer exist.

If this were exactly like Riget, what would be the point?
21 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Riget is indeed an excellent body of work. But the humor is based on Danish culture and might be lost on other viewers. If you are a Stephen King fan, then you'll probably enjoy his interpretation of that story. If you don't like Stephen King, then why watch his movies? Consider "Psycho" starring Ann Heche - a remake down to the very last word and camera angle of Hitchcock's "Psycho." What's the point? Or consider James Whale's original Frankenstein - an absolute horror masterpiece. Does that mean I shouldn't enjoy "Young Frankenstein" because it mocks the original? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It brings this story to people who wouldn't otherwise watch it. Some people don't like dubbed movies - they ruin the atmosphere and subtitled movies invariably cause me to miss visual cues. I agree, Riget "Rules", absolutely. But this version has some interesting qualities and I enjoyed watching it. It's better on DVD without all the cuts on cable/dish.
