Still image from the film JD's Revenge
In a nightclub hypnotist act gone wrong, mild-mannered law student Ike becomes the unwitting host for reincarnated 1940s gangster J.D. Walker. J.D.'s spirit is out for revenge, 30 years after the murder of his sister. Ike's friends wonder what has gotten into him as undergoes a complete change of personality — and wardrobe! Shot on location in New Orleans, J.D.'s Revenge stars Lou Gossett, Jr., as a corrupt preacher and Glynn Turman as Ike. (35mm presentation)
