Over Your Dead Body
Directed by Takashi Miike
Takashi Miike puts his own meta spin on a legendary Japanese ghost story. When a beautiful actress stars in a new play based on a classic horror tale, she pulls some strings to get her lover cast. With the cast in place, rehearsals begin, but off stage, some begin to develop their own obsessions. Trapped between the play and reality, they are horrified to find that a grudge can cross the blurred line.
Fiction and reality bend for actors performing a classic Japanese ghost story.
Cast: Ko Shibasaki, Hideaki Itô, Ebizô Ichikawa
I love Japanese horror, it is not only scary but also beautiful!
Very slow burn. Did I mention slow burn? Interesting, though, and satisfying ending.
It was a slow burn, but still very interesting. Kept reading Iemon as Lemon but hey, thats monkey brain for you. But ya, it was ok. Not scary, but still a good film.
im glad i got to see this movie based on a play.. really sad what happened to Iwa. But also how the movie had a twist
