Over Your Dead Body
Fiction begins to bleed into reality for actors (Ebizo Ichikawa, Ko Shibasaki, Hideaki Ito) as they rehearse a stage production of a classic Japanese ghost story.
A star, Miyuki Goto 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 cast in the play, even though he's a relatively unknown actor. Other performers Rio Asahina and Jun Suzuki 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 isn't meant to be both on and off stage, love turns into a grudge and crosses the blurred line between reality and fantasy.
