New movie, Over Her Dead Body, premieres January 7th in cinemas
Over Her Dead Body, the much anticipated new Nigerian movie, is set for premiere on January 7, 2022 in cinemas across the country.
Written, produced and directed by Sola Osofisan, ‘Over Her Dead Body’ is a refreshingly hilarious spin on the mother-in-law vs daughter-in-law story.
It features stellar cast.
Award-winning actress Nse Ikpe Etim (recently seen in Netflix’s King of Boys) plays Zara in the movie. Mama is played by veteran actress Binta Ayo Mogaji. A host of outstanding actors also feature in the movie, including veteran Uche Mac-Auley, Patrick ‘Rico Swavey’ Fakoya, Gregory Ojefua, Taiwo Solanke, Onyeka Fiaka, Adenike Ayodele, among others.
It is obvious mothers have an undeniable grip on their sons and the bond between a mother and son is as strong as it gets. Unfortunately, in some cases, this connection can grow shrill and destabilising. ‘Over Her Dead Body’ is a drama-comedy about mothers, sons, and the unlucky women who come between them.
In ‘Over Her Dead Body’, bluntly reminded of her mortality by an armed robbery attack in Ibadan, Zara’s mother-in-law, Mama, arrives unexpectedly on an extended stay. She has one mission resulting from that near-death experience; to embrace her grandchildren before she dies. Unfortunately, she has none. Mama decides it is taking too long for her only son and his wife of many years to deliver. To hasten the process, Mama bullies and mistreats her daughter-in-law, and deploys all kinds of schemes to get to her intended goal. And then, Zara, the henpecked daughter-in-law, decides to fight back…
