Over Your Dead Body (喰女-クイメ-, Kuime, [kɯ̟ᵝ.i.me̞]) is a 2014 Japanese supernatural horror film directed by Takashi Miike. It was released on 23 August 2014.[2][3]


A star, Miyuki Goto (Kō 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 (Ebizō Ichikawa XI) cast in the play, even though he's a relatively unknown actor. Other performers, Rio Asahina (Miho Nakanishi) and Jun Suzuki (Hideaki Itō), lust after Miyuki. Offstage, 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.
