Isaac (Glynn Turman) is an African-American who walks the straight and narrow, he earns his living driving cabs by day and studies to be a lawyer at night, pretty much to exhaustion. And he's in a relationship with Chritella (Joan Pringle), whom he loves very much and would never hurt or cheat on. But then, when he volunteers for a stage hypnotist, he's possessed by the ghost of J.D. (David McKnight), a small time crook who has been shot dead in 1942 after allegedly killing his sister (Alice Jubert). In the process, Isaac experiences fits of rage, during one he actually beats up Christella, and he also starts gambling and cheating on Christella - with Roberta, who just happens to be a splitting image of J.D.'s sister (and is thus also played by Alice Jubert). Roberta just happens to be the daughter of Reverend Bliss (Louis Gossett jr), whom Isaac somehow feels drawn to and who in turn takes a liking in Isaac - though Bliss's brother Theotis (Fred Pinkard) is quick to warn the reverend Isaac will mean trouble. And he isn't all that wrong, too, as somehow both Bliss and Theotis have had something to do with the death of J.D.'s sister which J.D. in Isaac's body now wants to avenge ...


Made somewhere at the crossroads of blaxploitation, gangster and horror flick of the possession variety, J.D.'s Revenge is most certainly not the most refined film of them all, as the story of the movie's a bit too simplistic while the directorial effort could have done with an extra helping of atmosphere - but if you're at all into 70s genre movies outside of cookie cutter territory with slightly whacky storylines, than this one's definitely one for you. And while it might not be the most "refined" movie, it does have sex and violence in all the right spots, accentuated with macho attitudes typical for the period, and Glynn Turman does actually carry the movie very well, finding the right balance between acting deranged and evoking sympathy.

No masterpiece most certainly, but good entertainment from yesteryear!
