This is a pretty straightforward storyline - guy is killed by a car-racing gang, returns as a spirit orb that can transform into either a person or a car, and he kills the car-racing gang while rekindling his former romance. Might as well be Shakespeare. Weirdly acted and too long, but a real hoot to watch. Not really a horror movie. By far the best moment of the movie is at the very end: “Jake…Jaaaake…Jaaaaimeeeee!” Not a good movie, but kind of fun to watch. And for some reason, a lot of big names are in this, and a lot of popular 80s songs are in it, too.
