'''''Soultaker''''' is a 1990 fantasy film starring Vivian Schilling (who wrote the screenplay and co-wrote the original story), Joe Estevez and [[LanternJawOfJustice Robert Z'Dar]]. The story involves a group of teenagers - unaware that they were killed in a car crash (due to the carelessness of their coked up driver/good friend) - on the run from an [[TheGrimReaper angel of death]]. As they flee from "[[{{Psychopomp}} The Soultaker]]", he begins picking them off one-by-one and becomes infatuated with one of the teenagers, Natalie, who is the spitting image of his lover in a past life. The two remaining teens, Natalie and her ex-boyfriend Zach, attempt to reunite their souls with their hospitalized bodies before their parents decide to pull the plug.

* TheEighties. Depressingly so. (Production ran in the late '80s.)

* TheEighties. Depressingly so. (Production ran in the late '80s.)) The film shows how the late '80s bled culturally into the early '90s.

* ReincarnationRomance: Toyed with. [[spoiler: Natalie apparently resembles the woman that the Soultaker shot in a previous life when her caught her in the act of infidelity. The movie isn't clear if she ''is'' reincarnated, or if Natalie just looks like her, but regardless, the Soultaker thinks she is.]]

Added DiffLines:

* VillainBall: The Estevez reaper catches this when about halfway in the movie he has Zach by the throat and, after being rejected by Natalie, throws him out the window rather than taking his soul like he has to!

* EvilWearsBlack: How the Soultaker dresses. It comes off as Music/JohnnyCash cosplay more than anything.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Joe Estevez, younger brother of Creator/MartinSheen and star (of about two scenes) of the ''[=MST3K=]''-featured film ''Film/{{Werewolf}}''.
** And B-movie veteran Robert Z'Dar, who [=MSTies=] will recognize from ''Film/FutureWar''. More general schlock enthusiasts will know him from the ''Kabuki Kop'' movies, as well as ''Film/ManiacCop'' and ''Pocket Ninjas''.

* FanService: The ''extremely'' lengthy sequence of Natalie taking a bath is clearly only in the film to add this element. Stranger still that the actress actually ''wrote'' this film.
