This week I got to watch ‘The Duplex’- is a 2015 Nigerian supernatural thriller film produced by Emma Isikaku and directed by Ikechukwu Onyeka.
An ambitious family man with a heavily pregnant wife is offered an
amazing duplex to buy at a suspiciously low bargain price. He accepts
the offer, but upon moving in his wife discovers that the deal is
anything but a bargain.
Duration: I hour, 59 seconds.
- Omoni Oboli as Adaku
- Mike Ezuruonye as Emeka
- Uru Eke as Dora
- Anthony Monjaro as Jones
- Ayo Umoh as Akpan
- Maureen Okpoko as Seer
really does not also have anything new to offer movie-goers.
Adaku would scream and express shock when the monster appears fully for
the first time; rather she screams when she embraces her husband. In
fact, her reactions are childish.
come Emeka raises more alarm than his wife when he starts to see the
ghost? Naturally, one thought the reverse would have been the case.
And then the pregnancy, even after six months, it still looked the same way, no difference, oh please!
At first, they made us believe the couple weren’t Christians. Her husband convinced her to always say
“i will not see anything and i will not hear anything.” whenever she heard the ghost…christians would have settled for the name of Jesus, right?
Only for the movie to get half way and the husband prays round the house using the name of Jesus, something they should have done months earlier. As if that wasn’t enough, he still goes ahead to seek a spiritualist whose psychic acting was so annoying, lol.
So many things were just so wrong with the storyline.
In conclusion, “Duplex” is not a movie i would waste money to see at the cinemas, neither is it something I would love to watch again.
You can check it out on IROKO TV!
