2. Glamour Girls (1994).

This movie was described as the most daring and ambitious movie at the time. It was a deviation from the stereotypical themes of rituals, family squabbles; rather the focus was sex, power and fame.

Although certain scenes and characters were criticized for raunchiness and Unclothedness, many praised the bravery of the key actors. The movie was classy and extravagant in every sense as each location or auto-mobile convincingly illustrated a society that indulge in material things.

3. Silent Night (1996).

The movie tells the story of a privileged student in search of excitement who joins a gang of armed robbers, believing that such action will alleviate his boredom. His father is forced to sentence him to death by firing squad.

4. Sango-The Legendary African King (1997).

To send off his troublesome wives, Alaafin Sango is so worked up that he emits fire from his mouth. And when he is to destroy his enemies at the war front, he belches fire. The rhythm of his fury has no limitation.

5. Igodo-The Land of the Living Dead (1999).

A village is in turmoil suffering from a curse laid on it and people are dying randomly. The Igwe calls a meeting of the elders and the witch doctor. One elder has a story to tell: The story of Amadioha. The secrets of the story holds the key to their misfortune.

Selected warriors from the village have to journey into the evil forest on a quest to retrieve the weapon to be used in rescuing the village.

6. Egg of Life (2006).

The king is devastated and calls the Chief Priestess (Clarion Chukwura) to unravel the mystery behind his death.

7. Karashika (1996).

Can we all remember the popular chant in this classic movie “karashika! karashika! Queen of Darkness, Lucifer Lucifer King of Demons?”

This movie was directed by Ifeanyi Ikpoenyi, starring Sandra Achums, Becky Okorie, Obi Madurugwu etc. It displays how Satan eats his way into the souls of the living. To recruit new followers for his kingdom of darkness he sends out Karishika, queen of demons, to the world of the living. There she misguides and seduces a number of people, who all fall prey to her because of their own shortcomings. All but the last fall for the temptation of either the fulfilment of their desperate wishes, or money, or sex. The last, a pastor, resists all temptation and is saved from hell through divine intervention in a final showdown between a Pentacostal congregation and Karishika and her helpers.

8. Issakaba (2001).

A group of vigorous men (vigilantes) with supernatural powers are employed to rid the corruption ridden land at all cost.

The men popularly known as the Bakassi Boys (Issakaba is almost Bakassi spelt backwards), are protected by charm to enable them avoid injury from criminals’ bullet and to detect innocence or guilt through the magic use of their machetes.

9. Blood Money (1997).

The movie reveals the connection between the ostentatious wealth of those in power and the exploitation and death of the poor and powerless. Human bodies, shorn of their human-ness, are needed to vomit or give birth to wealth.

The cult leader, referred to as “Lord Spiritual” by his subordinate ritualists, tells the newest member Mike that their cult, called The Vultures, operates like a bank. “They take a little risk and make plenty of money.” Mike can join the cult only after “passing through” the body of a vulture for three days.
