A cab driver finds himself the hostage of an engaging contract killer as he makes his rounds from hit to hit during one night in Los Angeles. He must find a way to save both himself and one last victim.
Det. John Hobbes is convinced that when killer Edgar Reese is executed, all of his troubles are over. But when people he knows and people on the street start to sing the same tune that Reese sang in the gas chamber, and those same people taunt him, he is told that maybe the cursed fallen angel Azazel is behind it all. Azazel is cursed to roam the Earth without a form, and he can switch bodies by any contact, making him hard to track. When Hobbes is forced to kill a man possessed by Azazel, he must clear his name while protecting his family and others from the evil, vengeful Azazel. Written by

The first scene which writer Nicholas Kazan came up with for the film was the scene where Azazel first passes from person to person (the scene which culminates with the possession of Charles Olom (Robert Joy). Kazan was thinking about how evil can be passed on from one person to another, that it is contagious; if one person is nasty to another person, the second person will be nasty to a third person, the third to a fourth and so on. In thinking about this, he hit on the notion of what that may be like literalized, and he came up with the scene. The rest of the move sprang from that scene. See more »

This was actually a pretty clever supernatural thriller. When released it failed at the box office, but has deveolped a following since. It's quite fascinating, hardly ever boring, has a nice cast, and is pretty creepy. It probubly failed due to poor marketing, because if a piece of crapp like "Hollow Man"(2000) can be a hit, this film should definately have been a hit. If you like supernatural thrillers, this will be right up your alley. *** out of ****.
