Critic Reviews for J.D.'s Revenge

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

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…

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

Despite a few entertaining moments and some strong performances, there's very little about this urban thriller that's worthy of mention.
