Nollywood trailers

Nollywood refers to the films and filmmaking industry of Nigeria. I've watched about ten of these trailers on YouTube and cannot figure out what any of these movies are about.

HITLER has little to do with the German fascist. It looks like an intense, violent love triangle involving someone who happens to be named Hitler. However, I was happy to see that the case does become a flesh eater's affair (yummers).

BABY POLICE simply looks amazing. At the very least, the trailer is a work of art. It starts off almost coherent, but as it progresses, it gets faster and faster, louder and louder, crazier and crazier, until the term BABY POLICE is nothing but a rushed garbling of syllables which no longer have meaning or purpose.

There is a trailer for BABY POLICE 2, but it isn't nearly as good as its predecessor. It merely highlights some of the expected BABY POLICE tropes, never committing to the crazy nor retaining the time-honored BABY POLICE spirit.

This YouTube channel features numerous Nollywood trailers (most of which I couldn't embed, unfortunately).

  1. Titles don't necessarily correlate with what happens in the movie... You should be able to get a feel of the subject matter from the trailer though.
