Storyline

A haunted hospital in Lewiston, Maine, built on the site of a Civil War-era mill that burned down in the fire which killed many children who worked there is hit by a series of increasingly devastating mysterious earthquakes. The jaded staff pays no attention to it, since everyone there has experienced much stranger and harder to explain things many times throughout the years. The arrival of two new patients, a comatose artist left paralyzed in a hit and run incident only to end up being saved from the brink of death by a mysterious divine force in the form of a giant telepathic anteater called Antubis and a female psychic whose son works at the hospital, stirs everything up. A strange ghost girl contacts both of them in an attempt to get them to warn the staff and prevent the upcoming great supernatural disaster. However, secretive malevolent forces are also there and they have no intention of letting anyone interfere with their infernal plans. Written by Cappella -NL-

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

22 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

I totally don't get why anyone keeps putting this down. Its fantastic! Its so clever, its so, knowing. Its aware of everything it does. Perfection in every way, WATCH IT! lol. And as for 'sloth-bear' surely ya can work out from the name 'Antibus' that he is an ant-eater. Unless ya didn't watch it properly! Its very funny in a lot of places, and it perfectly compliments the horror, making it dark, but very witty. I think that the characters are all expertly chosen, of course they are, Steven King chose em! He knows what he is doing! I would recommend it to anyone who likes Stephen King, anyone who likes horror, anyone who likes comedy, anyone who likes drama, anyone who likes to be moved by a show. It will stick around in your head for life. I am so happy to have seen it. You will be too
