''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.

* ExtremeDoormat: Washizu. Dear God, ''Washizu''. The man is so gullible around his wife that she has him wrapped around his little finger.

* SlidingScaleofFreeWillvsFate: Washizu is caught up in a prophecy that he can't avoid, from the moment he is given the title of Lord of North Castle, as well as in a cycle of KlingonPromotion a, given that Lord Tsuzuki had killed his previous lord to aquire his position. At the same time, he is given choices, whether or not to dispose of his trusted allies, and he picks the wrong decision each time, because he's so weak at the hands of his wife.
