The most dated part of this blax­ploita­tion riff on Jekyll & Hyde isn’t the gi­ant col­lars, but a char­ac­ter say­ing that a woman re­spects a man who “goes up­side of her head”.

A step up from Dr Black, Mr Hyde (not hard), it sees a law stu­dent taken over by a ’40s hustler’s spirit. The more com­plete his trans­for­ma­tion into the ma­ni­a­cal JD be­comes, the more en­ter­tain­ing it gets – though a grim at­tempted rape scene leaves a bad taste.
