What To Look Out For
On why bringing this story to life, director Yemi Film Boy Morafa shares:
It’s a timely story and the messages are essential for this season.
Social media craze, DM slides. Almost everyone is now a filmmaker of some sort and thus we have become the actors in the reality of a world so unreal.
The phrase “Don’t believe everything you see on social media” fits perfectly.
On a general note, Psychological thrillers are usually fast-paced films filled with unexpected twists and turns. How “The Guest” does this in a Nigerian way is what audiences will be excited to see.
