Over Your Dead Body
Miike Takashi
Japan 2014
94min
V'14

Yet another wild cinematic detour from madly prolific Japanese auteur Miike Takashi, 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, betrayal, 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.
