The following is a list of the top fifteen best Nollywood horror movies of all time, in no particular order.

1. Last Burial

The Last Burial

Released year: 2000

Last Burial is a horror film that I would recommend if you’re searching for something thrilling to watch at night.

Ogbuefi was renowned as a devoted Christian who valued his religion, yet this was only on the surface. When he died, the occultist organization he belonged to arrived to execute the rites that are expected of them when a member of their group dies. His family members were taken aback. What happened in this film was a battle between his family and an occultist group about who has the last say on who performs his final burial.

The closing story may make you gasp and send goosebumps down your spine.

2. Karishika


Released year: 1996

A gorgeous lady appears in this classical film titled Karishika. The lady is lovely during the day and a bloodthirsty fiend at night. The devil sends her to Earth to ruin successful men. She would persuade the men to send their wives away, then seize their money, and power, and ruin them completely. She did, however, not escape the prayers of the wives of the men she meant to ruin. As thunder struck her, she transformed into a variety of wild and ferocious animals before vanishing. You should certainly not view this movie late at night. It’s terrifying!

3. Blood Money

Released year: 1997

Blood Money is one of Nigeria’s most interesting films to date. This film featured a number of terrifying acts.
In this film, Kanayo O. Kanayo did an excellent job as the bad guy. The most engrossing scene in the film is when a boy transforms into a chicken after picking up money from the floor. The young boy was taken away for ceremonies. That scene is used by parents to scare their children into avoiding picking up money on the floor or collecting anything at all from unknown people.

4. Oracle

Released year: 1998

“Oracle,” which is anchored by excellent achievements from actors such as Pete Edochie, Prince James Uche, Enebeli Elebuwa, Charles Okafor, and Saint Obi, does not begin like a horror film. Just when you assume you’re seeing a film about three greedy men on the hunt for riches, the film goes all scary on you.

After seeing the movie Oracle, you wouldn’t want to go outdoors without an escort for the night! This film’s flying nasty items will give you shivers. This film altered Nigerians’ perceptions of figurines as household goods. Pete Edochie was truly wicked in this film.

Sakobi is a terrifying film that must be included on our list. You’d probably go to bed after seeing this film, hearing odd music and footsteps. The most terrifying scenario is the first one, in which a snake transforms into a lady. The initiation scene is made more terrifying by horrific men and women dancing to Enya music.

You’d be scared when Frank (Saint Obi) sacrificed his daughter for wealth and cut off his finger. Those happy and sometimes melancholy dance routines would also give you nightmares.

This is a film about how children can be initiated into occultic groups simply by eating puff puff. Wasn’t that unsettling? Inside this film, Helen Ukpabio needed to do the most heinous makeup on Alex Usifo as Beelzebub.
