The movie starring Clarion Chukwura-Abiola, Pete Edochie, Nkiru Sylvanus, Padita Agu, Georgina Onuoha, is about a young prince who is possessed by spirits, the spirits communicates with him and he is the only one that can see them, the priestess of the village(Clarion Chukwura-Abiola) tries to solve the problem of the boy when he starts to fall ill and the sickness starts getting worse, the boys father ( Pete Edochie) the king is very worried so he asks for a solution from the priestess, she tells them to find an egg called the egg of life and that they would need seven young virgins to embark on a dangerous journey into the evil forest to retrieve the egg and when they find the egg and bring it back to the village, the boy would not die.
Egg of life is a great movie, A block buster from Ojiofor Ezeanyaeche the producer, the sound quality is fantastic, the colour was okay and the evil spirits and the challenges that the ladies had to face on the their way in the forest made the movie even more interesting. The costume and the make up was also fantastic and the location, the movie has gotten nomination for Africa movie academy award for best visual effects.
Medium shot and long shot were mostly used in the movie. The camera movement was good.
The movie had some bad sides, the graphics were poor and I feel it would have been made better like making the evil spirits clearer, but the movie is still a must watch for everyone.
