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

All of the scenes involving Edgar Reese (Elias Koteas) were shot near the start of principal photography, and director Gregory Hoblit was so impressed with the physicality of actor Koteas' performance that he insisted everyone who subsequently becomes possessed by Azazel must move in a similar manner. Indeed, actors Robert Joy (who plays Charles Olom), James Gandolfini (Lou), Bob Rumnock (who plays the school teacher) and Tara Carnes (who plays the young girl) all studied Koteas' performance before shooting their own possessed scenes.
