Movie Summary

Director:
Arthur Marks
Released:
1976
Rating:
R

J.D's Revenge is a very stylish and entertaining mix of the horror and Blaxploitation genres takes some creative risks on a seriously limited budget but manages to deliver the gory goods. The film is full of gory scenes. The story is set in New Orleans in the mid-1940s, with black crime kingpin J.D. Walker (David McKnight) shot dead on Bourbon Street. Then the film skips forward to the present, when this clean-cut college student Ike (Glynn E. Turman) falls right under the malevolent influence of the ghostly gangster. As he begins to exhibit J.D.'s boisterous, violent traits, Ike seeks out a local minister (Louis Gossett, Jr., in a standout performance) -- who had once played a role in the gangster's execution -- to exact his revenge. This cult favorite has seen a revival of sorts on home video and primarily remains in the public eye due to the novelty value of its great soundtrack.
