    • Synopsis
    • Yet another wild cinematic detour from madly prolific Japanese auteur Takashi Miike, OVER YOUR DEAD BODY unfolds within the walls of a theatre where a troupe of players are in rehearsals for a production of Yotsuya Kaidan, a 200-year-old tale of murder, betray- al, and phantasmagorical vengeance — and where life comes to imitate art in spooky and ultimately shocking ways. As theatre and life begin to intertwine, the film builds to a nightmarish finale that only a filmmaker as perversely brilliant as Miike could have envisioned.
