From Japan's wildest and most prolific director Miike Takashi comes a bloody tale of murder, betrayal and phantasmagorical vengeance. Set in a theatre, this is a story where life comes to imitate art in spooky and ultimately shocking ways. Stage star Miyuki plays Oiwa, the protagonist in a new play based on the ghost story 'Yotsuya Kaidan', a classic tale of murder, betrayal and vengeance. She pulls some strings to get her lover, unknown actor Kosuke, cast in the play, sparking jealousy with the other male performers. Trapped between the play and reality, the cast's feelings for each other are amplified. When it becomes clear that love is not meant to be both on and offstage, love turns into a grudge and crosses the blurred line between reality and fantasy. As theatre and life begin to intertwine, 'Over Your Dead Body' builds to a nightmarish finale that only a filmmaker as perversely brilliant as Miike could have envisioned.
