I like all of Stephen Kings books and movies.
This is the beginning of a mini-series.
It keeps you on the edge of your seat, because you don't know what is going to
I gave it such a high rating, because it has it all, horror, drama, comedy and suspense.
DONT BUY THIS!!!

"This is the biggest scam ever!! This DVD will just leave you hangin and wanting more. You might as well buy the complete season if your gonna get into this because you will be pissed when the second episode is over and you are left there wondering what the hell happens. I bought this like an idiot at the store and then found out about the full season!! This DVD just cheats you out of 20 bucks, worst money I ever spent!!"
Buy the full series

"I gave 5 stars for the show because it was amazing.
But, if you're going to buy Kingdom Hospital; buy the whole series. (4 disc box set)
It has extra features, all the shows are in one box and it comes out to around the same price anyway, maybe even cheaper depending on where you go.
I don't own these three DVD's but it seems to me like a rip off."

"NOTE: This is the first three episodes of the series; so you need to catch the other two to get the whole series.
KINGDOM HOSPITAL seems to be Stephen King's homage to TWIN PEAKS. Stylistically they have much in common: animals that talk (including an anteater!); Downs Syndrome actors reminiscent of the dancing baby in Peaks; hospital staff breaking into song and dance with NA NA NA KISS HIM GOODBYE; and other subtle reminders. On its own, the beginning episodes are familiar King territory with vengeful spirits; eccentric characters; and many subplots going on. Set in a state of the art hospital built on the site of a Civil War era factory, KINGDOM HOSPITAL is unusual viewing. Andrew McCarthy does well as the maverick Dr. Hook; Bruce Davison chews up the scenery (quite well) as the egotistical, insensitive Dr. Stegman; Diane Ladd oozes maternal kindness as the hypochondriacal Sally Druse who knows the hospital is haunted; Suki Kaiser is good as Natalie Rickman, the wife of artist Peter Rickman (Jack Coleman), who is struck down by a van while jogging (King's own accident years ago resurfaces in this one); Jamie Harrold as the nerdish sex fiend, Dr. Straff; and Ed Begley Jr. as the hospital administrator.
Directed by Craig Baxley, the series quickly captures your attention and makes you want to watch the whole set!"
