Who ever came up with this fictional story really had us amazed. This movie aside its hair-raising times it gave all of us had tons of lessons in it. It clearly drew the lines between religion and beliefs.

This movie entirely inspired tons of movies to pick up on the existence of occult groups in the society and revealed their operations. I call it an “eye opener”.
It portrayed the inhuman activities of people selling their loved ones for easy money popularly called 'juju' in our local dialect.
Billionaires Club was centered around the activities of a secret brotherhood that sorted to killing others for rituals to attain wealth. It had great cast as well. Pete Edochie, Kanayo Kanayo, Clem Ohamaze and much more.
