Scream Factory is proud to present to North American fans, the supernatural horror feature movie, Over Your Dead Body. Directed by Takashi Miike (Audition), Over Your Dead Body is a modern take on one of Japan’s most famous ghost stories. Taking its cue from the art of Kabuki, the terrifying tale 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 ultimately shocking ways.
This much-anticipated movie premiered in the Vanguard Section of Toronto International Film Festival and has since played in the Sitges Film Festival, Etrange Festival, and the Busan International Film Festival to press acclaim and great audience enthusiasm. Over Your Dead Body is a must-have for movie collectors, horror enthusiasts and loyal fans of Takashi Miike to complete their movie library.
You can pre-order the Over Your Dead Body Blu-ray or DVD versions from Amazon or Shout Factory directly now; it will also be available on Digital HD, iTunes and available across all major On-Demand entertainment platforms on January 5, 2016.
A beautiful actress (Kô Shibasaki of 47 Ronin and Battle Royale) plays the protagonist in a new play based on a legendary ghost story. She pulls some strings to get her lover cast in the play, although he’s a relatively unknown actor. With the cast in place, rehearsals for the play, about an abusive relationship and a grudge, begin. But off stage, some begin to develop their own obsessions. Trapped between the play and reality, they are horrified to find that a real grudge can cross the blurred line between reality and fantasy. Will love flourish? Or has it already turned hideously dark?
