Ifan Michael’s supernatural period drama Foreigner’s God has to be one of the longest gestating Nollywood movies I have known, a movie brimming with star firepower in its cast. Just think of any actor working today, you will find them in this movie and now, we have been given a first look.
Set in 1947 Enugu, Foreigner’s God follows the story of English documentary photographer Pepper Claude (Kyle Colton) and his odyssey into the Igboland in search of a story. His bodyguard soon disappears mysteriously, and falls in love with Anya (Ini Dima-Okojie), an accused witch living under subhuman conditions in the heart of the jungle. He tries to free her and that sets a chain of erratic events into motion.
The teaser is quite compelling, opening with a witch burned alive, Eucharia Anunobi channeling a witchy-looking priestess with glazed eyes, and some chopped thriller beats. Now we need a full trailer, and a release date.
