J.D. Walker!!
19 November 1999 | by QKnownSee all my reviews

A classy film for those who like personality-disorder flicks. A Law Student (Glynn Turman) participates in a hypnotist show, only to have the soul of a deceased gangster enter his body!

J.D.'s Revenge happens to be one of my personal favorites because you can enjoy it on a campy level as well as a partial horror flick. Also has an early performance by Lou Gosset Jr.

Watch for J.D.'s famous one-liners!
