Found half-hidden in the back of my local video store, the cheesy packaging made it look like a tongue in cheek blaxploitation horror movie good for a few laughs. But the packaging misled, this is a surprisingly serious and effective supernatural revenge thriller. Nice guy cabbie/law student Ike (Glynn Turman - 'Cooley High') becomes possessed by nasty Forties pimp J.D. Walker (David McKnight). Ike/J.D. is intent on avenging the murder of his sister. Local Preacher Reverend Bliss (b-grade favourite Lou Gossett Jr.) is somehow involved.
Not a great movie, but a good one, and worth watching for Turman's excellent double turn if nothing else. This movie deserves to be better known.
