Throne of Blood is a Japanese action-drama by legendary film director Akira Kurosawa. It's a transplanted story of Shakespeare's play Macbeth, set in feudal Japan. The story begins with a pair of generals conquering in battle, but then getting lost in the Spider Web forest. There they meet a fortune teller who predicts their future, telling them both that they will rule as lords. When they return to their castle, both of them discover that the prophecy is coming true, but one of them is reluctant to fulfill it, while his ambitious and demanding wife urges him to go through with it.
