Audience Reviews for J.D.'s Revenge

A fun little Blaxploitation title with a bit of a supernatural twist, as a mild mannered guy is possessed by the spirit of a long dead pimp who begins to seek revenge on those that killed him, as well as causing chaos in the life of the man that he's taken over.

Good little flick, it's interesting to see the mannerisms change as out lead is taken over.

Well worth tracking down.
