Dead of Night

Showmax has produced a trailer for its latest Nigerian original film, “Dead of Night,” which is currently available for streaming.

Chiemeka Osuagwu, who has worked on Far From Home (2022), Blood Covenant (2022), and A Weekend to Forget (2023), directs Dead of Night.

The plot unfolds in the calm Ekeoba town as three adolescent girls—Chinaza, Onyi, and Ihuoma—played by Nollywood newcomers Favour Etim, Diana Egwatu, and Nene Aliemeke—plan a theft that takes a terrifying turn when they are locked in an abandoned mansion with deadly secrets.

Haunted by inexplicable powers, they must travel a maze of horror to escape the clutches of Onwu, an evil spirit out to claim their souls.
