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.

  • 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.

  • "Over Your Dead Body" is one of the greatest works of the prolific director, who, at last, manages to stay away from the nonsensical manga adaptations, in a way reminiscent of the atmosphere he created in films like "Audition."

  • 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.

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

  • 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.
