Scream Factory Reveals Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh Specs, Takes Miike’s Over Your Dead Body


over your dead bodyTwo updates from Scream Factory. We’ll talk about the new acquisition first… The company has picked up Takashi Miike’s Over Your Dead Body for a 2015 release. The film made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year.

From that fest’s program: A star, Miyuki Goto (Ko Shibasaki) plays Oiwa, the protagonist in a new play based on the ghost story Yotsuya Kaidan. She pulls some strings to get her lover, Kosuke Hasegawa (Ebizo Ichikawa) cast in the play, even though he’s a relatively unknown actor. Other performers Rio Asahina (Miho Nakanishi) and Jun Suzuki (Hideaki Ito) lust after Miyuki. Off stage the cast’s possessive love and obsessions exist as reality. Trapped between the play and reality, the cast’s feelings for each other are amplified. When it becomes clear that love is not meant to be both on and off stage, love turns into a grudge and crosses the blurred line between reality and fantasy.
