    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.

    Press

    Performances are solid... and tech/design aspects are strong within a claustrophobic concept.

    Dennis Harvey, Variety

    At times, OVER YOUR DEAD BODY’s pacing can be punishing, yet the payoff is very much worth the wait.

    In my films, none of the characters change at all. They don't learn from their mistakes at all... It's about just being yourself. And it's just organic; it's just natural for me. Maybe it's me just trying to explain why I can't change.

    Takashi Miike was born in Osaka, Japan. He is a graduate of the Yokohama Vocational School of Broadcast and Film. His vast filmography, much of which has screened at the Festival, includes THE BIRD PEOPLE IN CHINA (98), AUDITION (99), VISITOR Q (01), ICHI THE KILLER (01), and THIRTEEN ASSASSINS (10). OVER YOUR DEAD BODY (14) is his latest film, which premiered at Toronto IFF.
