Early 80s comedy with zombie/possessed weather man/news anchor man

This film was a comedy from the early/mid 80s and featured a weather man or news anchor man (may not have been the main character) who either gets turned into a zombie or is possessed using voodoo.

I remember a scene in which the guy is in an underground car park and I think a woman who's car's broken down asks him to help, oblivious to the fact that he's this ghoul type thing.

I also remember that the title sequence has coloured silhouettes in the shapes of things like crucifixes and voodoo dolls with pins in them.
