Now online is the first full trailer for the Takashi Miike directed horror film, Over Your Dead Body. With a dark and atmospheric look, it draws to mind the work in Miike’s Audition; a very good comparison. Squirm inducing in the preview alone, I can’t wait to see the film in its entirety. Over Your Dead Body hits Japanese theatres August 23, 2014!
Starring: Ebizo Ichikawa, Kou Shibasaki, Hideaki Ito, Hitomi Katayama, Miho Nakanishi, Maiko, Hiroshi Katsuno, and Ikko Furuya.
