The Wraith is a supernatural action horror film that is surprisingly good. The film has gotten many bad reviews, and is considered pretty bad. But The Wraith is actually enjoyable entertainment. A group of thugs murder a kid, and suddenly a new guy shows up in town. A short while after, a mysterious car appears and hunts down the gang members. The plot is simple, yet effective. The film blends elements of action and horror perfectly. There are some eerie parts in the film, nothing ever really scary, but a tad uncomforting. This is an entertaining film that is quite underrated and it doesn't deserve the flack it has received. Sure the film is pretty silly, but it has enough good elements to make it an enjoyable film. The fact that the director is able to combine action and supernatural horror into one film makes it watchable. The film isn't perfect, but it definitely is a film worth watching if you enjoy awesome car chases, horror and vengeance spirits returning to settle a few old scores. The films' acting is questionable, but this is a B movie, so what do you expect? The Wraith may not be the best supernatural horror flick around, but the fact that it combines action elements makes this an interesting film to watch. Add to that, a pretty good hard rock, pop and heavy metal soundtrack; and you have an entertaining film. A good addition to the supernatural horror genre.

This movie may make you think of Christine or The Car, but it's different from those movies, really. It's an awesome mysterious car thriller/horror movie with a good cast, and I loved it.

I went to see this because it was advertised on Headbanger's Ball. It's a silly film. The car, however, is undeinably cool. And Sherilyn Fenn is undeniably hot.

This is just one of those films thats so bad that its good!A proper 80's thriller,its got Ozzy Osbourne and Motley Crue on the soundtrack, its got Sherilyn Fenn looking fit and its got Charlie Sheen being cheesey.Good Stuff!

Boring, Confusing movie tries to be funny but isn't. There a lot of 80's movies that are WAY funnier than this like "License to Drive" for instance. Skip this garbage.

A completely stupid but enjoyable piece of 80s action/horror cinema that features a premise that could have only made sense in the 80s....

I wish I could get my hands on one of the Wraith vehicles...I know they are specialized hondas with high compression engines...

I have a love of all things drag racing movies (which crosses over into regular car race movies as well as biker movies) and this is top notch car porn for anyone who likes fast cars and fast guys.

Deliciously cheesy in all it's 80's drag racing glory this is a film every bit worthy of its cult status. Nick Cassevetes in particular is steller as the uber crazy and evil car gang leader who rules this small town and stretch of highway like a crime lord. Charlie Sheen's okay and Sherilyn Fenn does her job at being hot quite admirably. The plots a little holey if you think about it too much, but why are you doing that when there are awesome cars racing each other?

Ha! What a trip going back and watching one of Charlie Sheen's very first movies. Awww, he's not strung out on drugs yet! What about the movie? Very typical B movie with decent suspense. Its more about the cool factor for teens rather than to take seriously. Nice cars too. =D

Packard Walsh and his motorized gang lord and terrorize an Arizona desert town, where they force boys to drag-race so they can 'win' their vehicles. After they beat the decent teenager Jamie Hankins to death, dragging him from his girlfriend while they made love, a mysterious power creates Jake Kesey, an extremely cool motor-biker, who has a car which makes invincible and is returning to get revenage on the people who killed him and get back the girl he loves. . Jake befriends Jamie's girlfriend Keri Johnson, takes Jamie's sweet brother Bill under his wing and manages what sheriff Loomis couldn't: eliminate Packard's criminal gang the hard way. This film gives us some great eighties in it's soundtrack which includes Robert Palmer and Billy Idol. It also gives a look at the popular "punk" look of the eighties in the character of Skank.

To be fair, it may be better than a three but it has been so long since I saw it, and on t.v. at that.

Crappy story, cool car. Nice concept of story with no thought put in it, would make an awsome remake with more story

I loved this movie when I was young but I am not really sure why. Check it out sometime if you can find it.

One of my all time favorite movies. given it is an old movie so it a bit odd for this generation but i loved watching it as i grew up.
May 11, 2007
Now this is an Old school Cult Classic. Bascially take The Crow and Fast and the Furious (came out way before both of them) and you've got Charlie Sheen coming back from Hell to avenge his death. I'm shocked that nobody has remade this one, or even mentioned it.
May 10, 2007
i can't remember well, but i think there's a love scene that chould be less implied. but the theme of the movie is intresting, the car is awesome.
April 29, 2007
one of my all time favorites.. i watch it all the time and it is just as good today as it was 20 yrs ago
