The demons of Nollywood
In our recent Film Issue, Andy Capper wrote about Nigeria's Nollywood film scene and promised to upload some of the DVDs he found in Liberia in an internet cafe/business centre that doubles as a barbecued-chicken-feet outlet. Sorry it's taken so long – the discs were fucked – but below we present to the world a kind of greatest hits of clips from the (hopefully) soon-to-be-award-winning quadrilogy Signs of End Time (666).
In this scene, a small devil-child (think: a cross between Damien from The Omen and Alfie Patten) has fully-clothed sex with a woman. With a little bit of editing and some quicker cuts, these Nollywood guys could really be onto something. For example, is it really worth the intensely long and boring scene where the pair skulk along the dusty road to the child's lair?
Look out for a cameo from a young Butchie from The Wire here.
Here, the devil and his helpers try to giggle a man to death.
This is the best horror scene involving a car hoover you will ever see.
