Anyway, here's my own epic

1. Agbara Nla: the Ultimate power (1993)- very scary movie!
2. Ireke Onibudo (I met the cassette in the house grin it should be around the 70s or early 80s)
3. Ayanmo Ife- very funny stuff grin I can't stop laughing now
And so much more.
Funny I still have some of the videos in My closet. The last time I dusted my VHS PLAYER to watch 'em....I couldn't pass the first scene. They are as crappy as f/uck.

Except Thunderbolt, saworoide and a few others

I recall being scared silly by After School Hours,
and thrilled by State of Emergency. And i also have a vague recollection of returning from school to find Omotola severing some guy's d¡ck in Score to Settle. And of course there's the petrifying Witches.

All these memories are from back then when i had no choice but to sit with everyone and watch 'home videos', as the only alternative was being shut in my room to study math.

Now, of course, i'd rather study math.
