The trend in Nollywood is fast becoming eclectic; as it threads in the path of its acclaimed counterpart, Hollywood. With the cinematic evolution that has been experienced in the Nigerian movie industry, and a steady competition that has proven healthy alongside Hollywood movies, Gold Picture Movies births a first class thriller that adapts the renowned reality show, Big Brother Africa.
Plotted in harmony with the original Big Brother Africa, where selected individuals from speculated African countries would be in an isolated house while trying to avoid being evicted by viewers and ultimately winning a large cash prize at the end of the show, “Eviction Day” parades a set of contestants who were called into the competition rather than applying for it voluntarily.
In the real life Big Brother Africa, the contestant(s) who is not favoured by the viewers gets evicted and leaves the “isolated house” to return peacefully to his/her country. But have you ever imagined the next Big Brother show being a house where the eviction day for the housemates turns out to be the day they die?
How spell bound would you be knowing that the first two people to be evicted died even before they got a chance to leave the house?
“Eviction Day”, as written and directed by Afe Olumowe, has a mystery figure, “Zeus”, who wishes to fight for God on His behalf and decides to put an end to a group of people that have committed atrocities in His name, hence the founding of the mysterious cloned Big Brother House that mysteriously selects unsuspecting candidates for doom.
Produced by Vitus Nnebue and directed by Afe Olumowe.
Starring Mercy Johnson Okojie, Nkem Owoh, Uche Odoputa, Sam Sunny, Zilly Tete, Shirley Igwe, Derevko Obodoezi, the Nigerian cinema is about to be hit by the most thrilling imagination that lurks around its favourite show in Africa.
