Dead of Night is directed by Chiemeka Osuagwu, whose credits includes Far From Home (2022), Blood Covenant (2022), and  A Weekend to Forget (2023).

The story unfolds in the quiet Ekeoba village as the robbery plan of three teenage girls – Chinaza, Onyi and Ihuoma, played by Nollywood fresh faces Favour Etim, Diana Egwatu, and Nene Aliemeke – takes a terrifying turn when they become trapped in an abandoned mansion with dark secrets. Haunted by mysterious forces, they must navigate a labyrinth of horror to escape the clutches of Onwu, an evil entity determined to claim their souls.

The movie also stars Eric Obinna (Inside Life, Razz Guy), Allison Precious and Chuks Joseph (The Origin: Madam Koi-Koi).
