Black horror
1 May 2003 | by (east orange, new jersey) – See all my reviews

This is a startling movie starring Glynn Turman and Louis Gossett Jr. Here Glynn Turman is the innocent laid-back Ike who is a law student. Then he becomes possessed by a violent fornicating 1940s gangster. This reminds me of a Jekyel and Hyde movie. The setting of the movie is gloomy and the flashback scenes couldn't be any more eerier. The way he slapped around actress Joan Pringle when he (Glynn) was JD seem so real. To me this role fits Glynn Turman because he does it so naturally. If you are in for some suspense and thriller from the old school. This is the movie to check out.
