LAGOS, Nigeria – Over Her Dead Body, a new movie celebrating mothers has been released nationwide on cinema. The star studded film, featuring the celebrated Binta Ayo Mogaji , Nse Ikpe Etim and Uche Mac-Auley among others is touring cinema houses across Nigeria from January 7, 2022.
Running for 100 minutes, “Over Her Dead Body’ is from the stable of Pen Pusher Productions, Ltd, produced and directed by Sola Osofisan and distributed by Deluxe Cinemas Distribution.
It is a story of the undeniable grip mothers have on their sons. Unfortunately, in some cases, this connection grows shrill and becomes a destabilizing factor. ‘Over Her Dead Body’ is a drama-comedy about mothers, sons, and the unlucky women who come between them.
Bluntly reminded of her mortality by an armed robbery attack in faraway 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 get pregnant and bring forth offspring.
To hasten the process, Mama bullies and mistreats her daughter-in-law, deploying all kinds of schemes to get to her intended goal. And then, Zara, the henpecked daughter-in-law, decides to fight back…
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, etc.
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. The movie trailer is available online at this url: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyNpEolNyek
‘Over Her Dead Body’ was recorded on location in Lagos in February, 2020. Packaged by Pen Pusher Productions, a film and television content company based in Lagos, ‘Over Her Dead Body’ is being released by Genesis, a Nollywood movie distribution giant.
The movie (and tickets) will be available in all major cinema houses around Nigeria from January 7, 2022.
