Shout! Factory Acquires North American Rights to Takashi Miike's 'Over Your Dead Body'

Shout! Factory has picked up Takashi Miike’s “Over Your Dead Body” in a deal announced today by Charlotte Mickie, president of Mongrel Media International.

Miike’s “Audition” was also distributed by Shout! Factory. Said Mickie, in a statement: “We are just thrilled to be working with Shout! Factory…They have a fantastic track record and did a wonderful job with Miike’s masterpiece ‘Audition.’ We know that they will be terrific partners.”

The film, which was released over the summer in Japan, premiered at TIFF as a part of the “Vanguard” section, and it’s gone on to play several other film festivals across the globe. The film tells the story of a Japanese theater troupe mounting a production of classic Japanese ghost story Yotsuya Kaidan. As the actors work on the play, the line between real life and fiction blurs.
