1. Plot

The film begins with a boy named Michael, a kid who has a crush on a beautiful girl named Jada but is always rejected because Jada is stuck with a gangster, Lorenzo Johnson. When Michael comes close to her, he is beat up by Lorenzo and his homeboys, T-Bone and Baby Boy. But Michael is secretly involved in black magic, and tries to bring a doll that he calls Killjoy to life. After he is abducted by the gangsters and brought into the woods, Michael is accidentally shot and killed by Lorenzo.

A year later, Jada is now going out with a guy named Jamal who is similar to Michael. Lorenzo is going out with a girl named Kahara, who is just like Jada. When Lorenzo leaves to have sex with her, T-Bone and Baby Boy go get ice-cream. The ice-cream man, whos dressed up like a clown, claims he sells drugs. Baby Boy and T-Bone hop in the truck but suddenly find themselves in an abandoned building. They split up to find a way out. Baby Boy is rammed into the wall by the ice-cream truck, killing him. T-Bone starts smoking marijuana when suddenly it starts to burn him, and his body vanishes. His corpse ends up back in his hideout, along with Baby Boys. Meanwhile, Lorenzo, after having sex with Kahara, hears something outside her apartment building, and goes outside to check. He finds the ice-cream truck and opens the door; the ice-cream man pulls him in, and ends up at the abandoned building. After finding the ice-cream man, he confronts him and shows him the living corpses of T-Bone and Baby Boy; after they fade away, he shoots the ice-cream man dozens of times, but the ice-cream man sucks up the bullets a spoof of The Mask and shoots the bullets out of his mouth, killing Lorenzo.

Meanwhile, one of Jadas friends, Monique Austin, calls Jada, telling her that a homeless man Burghardt has come into her room and needs them to come over. The homeless man tells them that Lorenzo killed Michael a year ago, and explains that Michael was brought back to life by the Ice Cream Man, whose real name is Killjoy, the name of Michaels doll. He tells them that Killjoy just killed Lorenzo, Baby Boy, and T-Bone. Then he tells them that Killjoy/Michael can be killed by Jada, because the love of a young woman can destroy the evil in the heart. Before leaving, he tells them that they have to kill the doll the spirit came from, and the ice cream truck is outside.

Still not believing what the homeless man said, they go inside the ice-cream truck to check it out, and they end up in the abandoned building, where theyre confronted by T-Bone, Baby Boy, and Lorenzo, whose souls are under Killjoys control and are now his accomplices. The trio start fighting the accomplices until all three are killed, then Killjoy comes out and knocks Jamal and Monique out. He asks Jada for a kiss, upon which Jada agrees to do so, under one condition: that he will leave her world and never come back. But instead of disappearing, Killjoy transforms into Michael. Michael tells Jada that he did it all for her. Jada, who desperately wants to stop Michael/Killjoy from killing, stabs Michael to death, and Michael fades away.

Jamal, Jada, and Monique are about to leave when Killjoy, Lorenzo, T-Bone, and Baby Boy appear behind them. The trio frantically run back into the ice-cream truck and end up in Michaels house, where the doll lies on the floor. The doll turns into Michael, who constantly begs her for forgiveness, but Jada continues to stab it. The earth starts to shake, and while Jada, Jamal, and Monique try to stay still within the circle of candles without breaking it, Baby Boy, T-Bone, and Lorenzos souls are sucked into a portal. The trio then watch as Killjoy finishes off Michael via vaporization, and the trio are sent back to Jadas room, where the homeless man thanks them, and vanishes, meaning hes an angel from heaven.

The trio decides to go out and eat, when they are confronted by Ray Jackson Washington, and Tamara Rochelle, who are both in Jadas English class. Ray says that he gained access into the club free because his brother owns the place, and his name is Killjoy. The trio then see that Ray turns into Killjoy, and Tamara turns into Lorenzo. Killjoy starts laughing maniacally at the trio, with Jada screaming, until Jada wakes up in bed, along with Jamal, indicating that the entire experience was all a dream. Jamal tries to calm Jada down by going under the covers to perform oral sex on her, but then rises from the covers as Killjoy. The film ends with a shot of Jada screaming and Killjoy stating, "That was some good pussay!!!", followed by evil laughter.
