Movie Info

Although notorious New Orleans gangster J.D. Walker (David McKnight) is shot and killed in the 1940s, his spirit remains restless for three decades, until a hypnotist's supernatural nightclub act allows him to take over the body of Isaac (Glynn Turman), a mild-mannered law student. After inhabiting Isaac, Walker decides to hunt down the Rev. Elija Bliss (Louis Gossett Jr.), a former criminal who helped the authorities find and assassinate the mobster years ago.

Critic Reviews for J.D.'s Revenge

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (3)

  • Once we figure out this basic situation, we're on familiar ground; diabolical possessions are as commonplace in the movies these days as love scenes used to be. But J.D.'s Revenge adds a couple of twists.

    October 23, 2004 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • As usual, blood flows freely and gratuitously, but you could do worse.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • One of the lesser known of the Blaxploitation/horror flicks.

    September 12, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4.0 | Full Review…
  • True, it's as viciously misogynistic as any of its brethren. But J.D.'s Revenge features a dynamic performance from Turman and is technically and narratively superior to other horror items in the Blaxploitation pool

    August 27, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Satisfies fans of both horror and blaxploitation, and it is a rarity in both genres because of the unique subject matter.

    February 26, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Its appeal is certainly wider than simply a Blaxploitation curio and it transcends any labels to be a great thriller, horror film and social commentary.

    November 10, 2017 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
