Abstract [en]

TV series, movies, and literature. American horror and Gothic have had a large impact on Nordic productions, but at the same time Nordic Gothic – as well as Nordic Noir – has become extremely popular in the US. One example of the latter is Stephen King’s TV series Kingdom Hospital (2004), which is based on Lars von Trier’s Danish TV series Riget (1994, 1997). In her paper, Troy will employ Linda Hutcheon’s notion of transcultural adaptation in order to analyze some of the differences between King’s and von Trier’s TV series in regard to, for example, Gothic humor; the representation of the history of the setting, social institutions, the provincial vs. the urban, gender and class hierarchies; and media-specific features that guide the viewers’ perception, such as the title sequences and musical themes that frame the episodes as well as the special effects, camera angles, and the color and quality of the footage.
