Movie Info

Directed by Takashi Miike, 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.

Critic Reviews for Over Your Dead Body (Kuime)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

The movie is dull right up until the point that it becomes completely, characteristically bonkers, with Miike trotting out some of his trademark obscene violence.

A stately backstage drama that gradually morphs into a full-blown supernatural horror movie, [this is] a synthetic experience that sporadically intrigues but never fully engages.

Over Your Dead Body will certainly appeal to Miike's hardcore fan base, for his technical mastery of blood is on display throughout.

March 2, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Instead of relying on frenetic insanity and buckets of viscera, this movie sets an uneasy tone where tension slowly crawls to its peak.

January 5, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Evocatively shot and earns a few winces of discomfort on its way to a lurid finale twist. What the picture fails to accomplish, however, is giving the viewer someone to care about, relate to, or understand.

January 5, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

two parallel narratives bleed into one another in a deeply irrational manner, blurring the boundaries between theatre and film, antique and (post)modern, actor and character, the living and the dead.
