''Throne of Blood'' (''Kumonosu Jō'', "Spider Web Castle"), is Creator/AkiraKurosawa's version of ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}''.It stars Creator/ToshiroMifune as Washizu, a Japanese warlord who meets a strange spirit who gives him some dark ideas about taking the place of his lord. Kurosawa fuses [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]]'s plot with elements from Noh theater, and sets the story at an unspecified time and place in [[JidaiGeki Sengoku-era Japan]]. The [[NoManOfWomanBorn Macduff]] subplot is left out, leading to a different, but more thematic end for the Macbeth figure.
